Abstract [en]

Using rich register data to analyze response behavior in a survey on health and economic standard, a model to explain contact and participation probabilities is estimated. A main result is that both probabilities are lower among respondents who are less well-off, out of the labor market, on benefits or immigrants. We also find a significant time-cost effect on participation. Previous findings that the probability of contact is low in urban areas and among singles are confirmed.
