Methodological approach/research design

During regular surveys of 30,000 households, members of the TNS ACCESS Panel, a screening question inquiring about pregnant members of the household was asked in three waves in 2003 and 2004. In approx. 2% of households there was a pregnant woman who was also able to give the estimated date of delivery. Between January and October 2004 these women were specifically approached in writing from their 20th week of pregnancy and asked to complete an in-depth questionnaire.
