    As referenced in the article landline random digit dialling (RDD) have been the method of choice for the telephone based population health survey conducted by the NSW Ministry of Health over the last decade. However because of the increase in mobile phone ownership the methology was modified to include mobile only persons using an overlapping duel-frame design in 2012.
