For example, the target sampling rate is 7.11 percent for Wyoming and 4.95 percent for Vermont (see Table 5-1). All residents of the selected small facilities are eligible to be interviewed, unless the actual number of residents exceeds 15. In such instances, a subsample of 10 residents is selected when the field representative visits the facility (a process similar to that for the large facilities).
