Som ett första urvalssteg drogs slumpvis ur CFR, centrala företagsregistret, ett antal arbetsplatser med minst 10 anställda ifrån de två länen. Dessa arbetsplatser kontaktades och med deras hjälp anskaffades listor över de anställda. Företagen indelades i grupper efter storlek, och via ett stratifierat urval drogs ett antal anställda som fick ta emot ett frågeformulär.
