The Legal Problems of Everyday Life - The Nature, Extent and Consequences of Justiciable Problems Experienced by Canadians
A total of 6,665 interviews were completed for this survey. The margin of error for a sample of this size is +/- 1.2 percentage points, 19 times in 20. The margins are wider for regional and demographic sub-samples. The effective response rate for the survey is 13 percent: the number of completed interviews (6,665) divided by the total dialed sample (66,200) minus the non-valid/non-residential numbers, the numbers not in service and the numbers that presented a language barrier (14,915). The actual completion rate is 23 percent: the number of completed interviews(6,665) divided by the number of qualified respondents contacted directly (29,009).
