As the same as JHPS first wave, survey areas were randomly divided into two parts (denoted Group A and Group B), and two different survey methods were applied. At the individual level, the same survey method was applied for the first wave survey, the second wave survey and the third wave survey.
The survey was implemented by the drop-off pick-up (DOPU) method. The surveyor distributed the questionnaire to the survey respondent, and later the surveyor revisited the respondent to collect the questionnaire that had been completed by the respondent. For this group, the survey is totally self-administered.
