Within these, custom subdistricts made of approx. 30 households each were defined, and one third randomly sampled. Finally a list of all household members aged 18-65 in the selected subdistricts was created, and 25% randomly sampled. Osnabrück: residents of the city of Osnabrück in Lower Saxony and surroundings (138,000 inhabitants); Hoyerswerda: residents of the city of Osnabrück in Saxony and surroundings (90,000 inhabitants).
Sample size: Federal Republic: 1,498; Osnabrück: 1,103; Democratic Republic: 2,147
