The left hand method was used to select a starting point and then a skip pattern to randomly select every third household. The Kish Grid was used to select respondents 18 years and older within each household.
- The sample was distributed at the provincial level, rural and urban, in all four provinces of Pakistan (except for the Federally Administered Tribal Areas and Chitral). The sample was then post-weighted to make it proportionate to national representation by province.
