Description:
This report describes a telephone survey commissioned by safefood to obtain data on the selfreported incidence of IID in the population on the Republic of Ireland (ROI) using two recall periods: 7 days and 28 days. The survey comprised 3,601 telephone interviews carried out in 2009, 3,000 among the 7-day recall group and 601 among the 28-day recall group. A random digit dialling (RDD) sampling method of residential landline telephone numbers using CATI (computer aided telephone interviewing) was used to sample households. Within households, interviewers asked to interview the household member whose birthday occurred next. Respondents were assigned at random to answer questions regarding symptoms of diarrhoea and vomiting experienced either in the previous 7 days or the previous 28 days. All age groups were included in the survey. A quota-based sampling strategy, to reflect the age and sex distribution of the population, was employed.
