Supplementary notes

The original question was phrased by the source as follows: "Oletteko joskus 12 viime kuukauden aikana:" Kysymyspatterin alakysymyksinä esitettiin a) pelännyt, että teiltä loppuu ruoka, ennen kuin saatte rahaa ostaaksenne lisää?, b) joutunut tinkimään lääkkeiden ostosta rahan puutteen vuoksi? ja c) jättänyt rahan puutteen vuoksi käymättä lääkärissä? Vastausvaihtoehtoina esitettiin 1) en ja 2) kyllä. Tarkastelussa on vähintään yhteen, useampaan tai kaikkin alakysymyksiin vaihtoehdolla 1) kyllä vastanneiden osuus. Osuuksille on laskettu 95 % luottamusvälit huomioiden otanta-asetelma."

The source provides the following information: "Information is collected by a mail and online questionnaire.
The respondents are at least 20 years old and have permanent residency in Finland. There is no upper age limit.
The questionnaire is sent to people drawn by random sampling from the data of the Population Register Centre.
The questionnaire form is available in Finnish, Swedish, Russian and English. The survey is carried out annually at the national level (sample size 10,000). This allows processing the findings only on the national level, not by any smaller regions.
Once every four years, the sample size is expanded to enable following the changes by counties at a rough level (sample size 3,300/county)."
