RADIODAY (V111) indicates whether the woman usually listens to the radio every day.

Comparability — Index



Apart from universe differences and minor variation in question wording, RADIODAY (V111) is largely comparable across samples. The majority of samples ask the respondent, "Do you listen to the radio every day?" However, some surveys determine this by asking about how many hours per day the woman listens to the radio or how many times per week. Samples with potentially significant variation in question wording are noted below.
