ALCANIZ-ZANON, Manuela et al. New design of the Health Survey of Catalonia (Spain, 2010-2014): a step forward in health planning and evaluation. Gac Sanit [online]. 2014, vol.28, n.4, pp.338-340. ISSN 0213-9111.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/j.gaceta.2013.12.004.

This article presents the genesis of the Health Survey of Catalonia (Spain, 2010-2014) with its semiannual subsamples and explains the basic characteristics of its multistage sampling design. In comparison with previous surveys, the organizational advantages of this new statistical operation include rapid data availability and the ability to continuously monitor the population. The main benefits are timeliness in the production of indicators and the possibility of introducing new topics through the supplemental questionnaire as a function of needs. Limitations consist of the complexity of the sample design and the lack of longitudinal follow-up of the sample. Suitable sampling weights for each specific subsample are necessary for any statistical analysis of micro-data. Accuracy in the analysis of territorial disaggregation or population subgroups increases if annual samples are accumulated.
