Quote from: Khadafi on December 17, 2018, 12:47:38 PM66% of the US population supports completely legalizing recreational weed
94% supports legalizing medical marijuana

How did they get these numbers? And under what context did they get them?
62 oops

The analysis in this report is based on telephone interviews conducted September 18-24, 2018
among a national sample of 1,754 adults, 18 years of age or older, living in all 50 U.S. states and
the District of Columbia (439 respondents were interviewed on a landline telephone, and 1,315
were interviewed on a cell phone, including 829 who had no landline telephone).1 The survey was
conducted by interviewers under the direction of Abt Associates. A combination of landline and
cell phone random digit dial samples were used; both samples were provided by Survey Sampling
International, LLC. Interviews were conducted in English and Spanish. Respondents in the
landline sample were selected by randomly asking for the youngest adult male or female who is
now at home. Interviews in the cell sample were conducted with the person who answered the
phone, if that person was an adult 18 years of age or older. For detailed information about our
survey methodology, see
The combined landline and cell phone sample is weighted using an iterative technique that
matches gender, age, education, race, Hispanic origin and nativity and region to parameters from
the 2016 Census Bureau's American Community Survey one-year estimates and population
density to parameters from the Decennial Census. The sample also is weighted to match current
patterns of telephone status (landline only, cell phone only, or both landline and cell phone), based
on extrapolations from the 2016 National Health Interview Survey. The weighting procedure also
accounts for the fact that respondents with both landline and cell phones have a greater
probability of being included in the combined sample and adjusts for household size among
respondents with a landline phone. The margins of error reported and statistical tests of
significance are adjusted to account for the survey's design effect, a measure of how much
efficiency is lost from the weighting procedures.

Where dose the 94% number come from? I just skimmed through the link but didn't notice it. That's the number that seems like it would be off. And did they ever show the actual questions asked in the survey?
