A common concern of survey researchers is whether the coverage properties of an address-based sampling (ABS) frame create outcome bias in the estimates from in-person surveys. This paper evaluates basic demographics and several drug use and mental health measures obtained from 1,725 respondents in a probability sample of 200 area segments from the National Survey on Drug Use and Health (NSDUH). The evaluation compares outcomes from respondents covered by the NSDUH’s field enumerated (FE) frame to those covered by an ABS frame derived from the United States Postal Service Computerized Delivery Sequence (USPS CDS) file. After post-stratifying the weights to populations with known ABS undercoverage, we test for significant differences in outcomes between the two frames.
