Sample:    For each phase of the study, a representative sample of the urban adult Jewish population was drawn from the voters' list of the Interior Ministry. The respondents were selected from greater Tel Aviv, Jerusalem, Haifa, and Beer Sheba -- areas that contained 60 percent of the country's population. Underrepresented groups were females, people born in Asia or Africa, newcomers, and persons with a low level of education.
