The Social Science Research Center (SSRC) at Boise State University outsourced the data collection component of this telephone-based public policy survey of Idahoans, to the Social and Economic Sciences Research Center (SESRC) at Washington State University. The SSRC supervised the work of the SESRC at WSU, which utilized a random-digit-dialing methodology in conducting this survey. There were 706 responses to the survey, which were obtained from an adjusted field sample of 1,393 prospective respondents. The adjusted response rate for the 12th Annual Idaho Public Policy Survey is 51%. However, a better indicator of the representative nature of responses is found in the standard error of measurement calculation. For this survey the estimated SE is: ± 3.8 percent at a 95% confidence level.
