To ensure the representativeness of the survey of the adult  population (aged 18 years and older), in each country a sample of  respondents was formed, corresponding to the structure of the  country's population according to the results of the last population  census. Surveys in different countries were carried out in the format  of a formalized interview (questionnaire) in two versions: in the  method of a formalized face-to-face interview at the place of  residence, and in the method of telephone interview (CATI).
