The Rapid Mobile Phone Survey (RaMPS) on Noncommunicable Diseases (NCDs) and COVID-19 in Belize was conducted to understand people’s knowledge, attitudes, and behaviors about COVID-19 and to gauge the impact of COVID-19 on NCDs and mental health. 

The computer-assisted telephone interview survey was based on a sample of 2,002 adults age 18 and older and employed random-digit-dialing (RDD) methods to produce key indicators stratified by sex. A total of 6,452 mobile phone numbers were dialed, of which 3,345 mobile phone users were contacted, and yielded 2,002 interviews.
The cooperation rate* was 59.9%. Data were collected between December 18, 2021 and January 23, 2022.

*The cooperation rate is the number of complete interviews divided by the number of interviews (complete plus partial) plus the number of non-interviews that involve the identification of and contact with an eligible respondent (refusal and break-off plus other).
