  13. 13. MethodologyThis Kaiser Health Tracking Poll was designed and analyzed by public opinion researchers at the Kaiser FamilyFoundation led by Mollyann Brodie, Ph.D., including Liz Hamel, Claudia Deane, Sarah Cho, Bianca DiJulio, andBecky Hanna. The survey was conducted February 14-19, 2013, among a nationally representative random digitdial telephone sample of 1,209 adults ages 18 and older, living in the United States, including Alaska and Hawaii(note: persons without a telephone could not be included in the random selection process). Computer-assistedtelephone interviews conducted by landline (602) and cell phone (607, including 321 who had no landlinetelephone) were carried out in English and Spanish by Princeton Data Source under the direction of PrincetonSurvey Research Associates International (PSRAI). The combined landline and cell phone sample was weighted tobalance the sample demographics to match Census estimates for the national population on sex, age, education,race, Hispanic origin, nativity (for Hispanics only), region and telephone usage.All statistical tests of significance account for the effect of weighting. The margin of sampling error including thedesign effect for the full sample is plus or minus 3 percentage points. For results based on subgroups, the marginof sampling error may be higher. Note that sampling error is only one of many potential sources of error in this orany other public opinion poll.The full question wording and methodology of the polls can be viewed online at:http://www.kff.org/kaiserpolls/8418.cfm
