RDD Sampling

RDD Sampling

Pure Probability Based Samples for Landline and Wireless Phones

Scientific Telephone Samples (STS) offers a comprehensive array of random digit dialing (RDD) sampling options to fulfill any marketing research project. Each RDD sample is scientifically constructed to yield a highly representative sample of the population under study. RDD sampling is the most recommended sampling frame when representation is of key importance. This statistical accuracy is achieved primarily due to the fact all telephone households, including both listed and unlisted phones, are included in the sampling frame for RDD Landline and RDD Wireless samples.

Unlike listed samples, which are targeted toward specific demographic segments of the population (such as age, income, or presence of children) RDD samples are more general in scope and provide a lower degree of sampling error.

STS offers both RDD Wireless and RDD Landline samples, and since 57.1% of US households are without a landline, it is very important to make a significant proportion of your sample wireless. The following chart shows the distribution of telephone households across the country:

At STS, we have sophisticated techniques for targeting RDD samples to geographic areas and create “hybrid samples” using a blend of our other targeted sampling frames. RDD samples can also be cleaned to remove non-productive numbers. In fact, business purging is free on every RDD order. We also offer STS Attended-PreID™ screening to remove disconnected numbers and help RDD samples become more efficient in the field.

Please contact an STS Account Representative to discuss all the available options and how RDD sampling can help your research become more representative.

Thus, you can choose to call only those phone numbers that are more active and likely to be a live number.
