829 completed interviews: 306 via RDD interviewing (random digit dialing) and 523 from DJN frame (distinctive Jewish names). [See "Study Notes" below.]
Sampling frame designed to be representative of all Jewish households in the state; a Jewish household was defined as one that contained someone was born, raised or currently Jewish.
9% of all completed Jewish households were with a non-Jewish household member.
Sample Size: 829
Two sampling frames were used: random digit dialing (RDD) and households with a Distinctive Jewish Name (DJN) listed in the telephone directory.
RDD sampling frame includes 71 of all Rhode Island exchanges; 95% of Federation-listed households are in these collection of telephone exchange, so an adjustment was made in the estimation process for non-sampled exchanges.
