If your household has been selected to take part in the survey, you will receive a letter and leaflet in the post that will give you key information about the survey, and what is involved in taking part. Additional information on the purposes of the study, how information is handled in accordance with data protection legislation and other frequently asked questions is available here.
Following delivery of the advance letter, an interviewer from our survey contractors, Ipsos Mori and ScotCen, will then call at your home. Interviews can take place in the evenings and at weekends as well as during working hours if that suits you. Every interviewer carries an ID card which he or she should always show you. If you have any doubts about their identity please telephone freephone ScotCen Social Research on 0800 652 4574 or Ipsos MORI on 0808 238 5376 (9.30 am to 5.00 pm, Monday to Friday) or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Interviewers will also carry copies of the survey letter and leaflet. So, if for some reason, you didn't see either, the interviewers will be happy to provide you with a copy.
