Country of birth may be available but without information on parents’ country of birth, thereby impeding the identification of second-generation immigrants). In addition, sometimes data exists but is only available for official purposes and therefore not provided to individual researchers. This book provides examples of different approaches regarding sampling frames. Chapter 4 presents a case in which the research team found that no appropriate sample frame existed and had to create one; whereas chapter 7 presents a case where an adequate sampling frame did exist, but researchers nonetheless had to adapt it to the resources available to carry out the fieldwork.

The estimated strike rates in areas are therefore likely to be incorrect; while this will affect the efficiency of the selection procedure it should not bias the sample. The areas (say, electoral wards) are then divided into strata so that the strike rates will be similar within strata and will differ between strata. For a given total screening sample size, the optimum allocation per stratum (in the sense of maximising the effective sample size) is proportional to the stratum population size multiplied by the square root of the expected strike 52 BOB ERENS rate (see Appendix B in Nazroo, Berthoud, Erens, Karlsen & Purdon 2005).
