Abstract [en]

Aims: The paper gives an overview on design and sample selection, measures, realization and analyses of the 2012 Epidemiological Survey of Substance Abuse (ESA). Methods: A disproportional sample was drawn from population registers using a two-stage probability design oversampling younger birth cohorts. Different modes of administration were used (paper-and-pencil questionnaire, telephone interview, online questionnaire). Results: A total of 9 084 individuals aged 18 to 64 years participated in the survey (response rate 53.6 %). The redressement weight had an effectiveness of 67.6 %. Non-responders showed a lower prevalence of alcohol and cannabis use, but a higher prevalence of episodic heavy drinking and hypnotics use as well as a higher tobacco use quantity. Respondents in the telephone and internet mode had a lower rate of substance use than those in the paper-and-pencil mode. Conclusions: Contrary to the general trend of decreasing response rates, the ESA achieves increasing response rates over the past years due to the application of a mixed mode design. Selectivity effects are possible because of the exclusion of specific population subgroups and non-response effects.
