  13. 13. This Kaiser Health Tracking Poll was designed and analyzed by public opinion researchers at the Kaiser Family Foundationled by Mollyann Brodie, Ph.D., including Liz Hamel and Sarah Cho. The survey was conducted June 5-9, 2013, among anationally representative random digit dial telephone sample of 1,505 adults ages 18 and older, living in the UnitedStates, including Alaska and Hawaii (note: persons without a telephone could not be included in the random selectionprocess). Computer-assisted telephone interviews conducted by landline (752) and cell phone (753, including 385 whohad no landline telephone) were carried out in English and Spanish by Princeton Data Source under the direction ofPrinceton Survey Research Associates International (PSRAI). The combined landline and cell phone sample was weightedto balance the sample demographics to match Census estimates for the national population onsex, 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 the designeffect for the full sample is plus or minus 3 percentage points . For results based on subgroups, the margin of samplingerror may be higher. Note that sampling error is only one of many potential sources of error in this or any other publicopinion poll.The full question wording and methodology of the polls can be viewed online at:http://www.kff.org/health-reform/poll-finding/kaiser-health-tracking-poll-june-2013/Methodology
