The person to be interviewed within the household was chosen randomly among household members, according to established quotas. Quotas Quotas crossed by region (vegueries), habitat, gender and age, proportional to actual population. Final Sample 2614 interviews Sample error margin +2,0% calculated for a reliability level of 95,5%, under the assumption of maximum statistical indetermination (p=q=50%) according to the sample error formula for infinite universes. Data weighting The weighting of interviews have been equated to the established distribution, so as to correct little deviations. Extra weighting has been introduced according to place of birth, equating it to actual proportion in present demographic data. Diagnòstic percepcions Catalunya – Espanya 3
