The Rapid Mobile Phone Survey (RaMPS) on Noncommunicable Diseases (NCDs) and COVID-19 in Paraguay 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 2,001 adults age 18 and older and employed random-digit-dialing (RDD) methods to produce key indicators stratified by sex. A total of 13,393 mobile phone numbers were dialed, of which 5,171 mobile phone users were contacted, and yielded 2,001 interviews.
The cooperation rate* was 38.7%. Data were collected between September 14 and October 21, 2021. 

*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).
