Rapid Mobile Phone Survey on Noncommunicable diseases and COVID-19: Uruguay, 2022
The Rapid Mobile Phone Survey (RaMPS) on Noncommunicable Diseases (NCDs) and COVID-19 in Uruguay was conducted to understand people’s knowledge, behaviors, and service utilization about NCDs, as well as gauge attitudes towards health policies.
The computer-assisted telephone interview survey was based on a sample of 2,005 adults aged 18 and older and employed random-digit-dialing (RDD) methods to produce key indicators stratified by sex. A total of 34,891 mobile phone numbers were dialed, of which 8,386 mobile phone users were contacted, and yielded 2,005 interviews. The cooperation rate* was 18.2%. Data were collected between September 22 and October 20, 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).
