The implications are the same as in the manyto-one scenario, and a common solution when selecting one household member at random is to multiply the sampling weight by the number of eligible respondents (3 in the above example) and divide it by the number of frame entries for the household (2 telephone lines, or a combined adjustment weight of 3/2). There have also been developments in telephone number portability that create frame linkage problems. S. a. local number portability). When telephone customers wish to carry a telephone number to a new service provider, a third number (sometimes referred to as a shadow or ghost number or a location routing number) is assigned, which can be selected in an RDD sample.
Nicolaas and Lynn (2002) showed how after the restructuring it is possible to generate efﬁcient RDD samples using publicly available blocks of allocated landline telephone numbers. While RDD may be more appropriate for countries with high coverage rates and a standardized numbering system, there has been some reluctance to use these approaches; RDD methods have not reached the levels of use in the United States. Though standardized telephone numbering systems facilitate RDD sampling, creative solutions for countries lacking standardized numbering have been instituted.
There have also been developments in telephone number portability that create frame linkage problems. S. a. local number portability). When telephone customers wish to carry a telephone number to a new service provider, a third number (sometimes referred to as a shadow or ghost number or a location routing number) is assigned, which can be selected in an RDD sample. Such numbers are used to simply manage the transfer of services from one provider to another. These numbers are technically nonworking numbers that (a) would be considered ineligible in calling through an RDD sample and (b) can increase survey costs if they remain in RDD frames.
