2010 National Sample Frame.
U.S. households are the primary unit for sample selection for many studies, but sample frames for households can be difficult and expensive to create. In order to provide a sample frame for use by many surveys, NORC has constructed the 2010 National Sample Frame, based on the 2010 Census information. This sample is representative of over 99% of U.S. households and provides a listing of almost 3 million households, including over 80,000 rural households. More
