Survey 1996 - 6 Months Old

Del

In 1996, the survey covered only children of mothers with Danish citizenship and children from ethnic minorities.

Danish survey

The 1996-survey of children of mothers with Danish citizenship used one questionnaire to the mothers and one to the fathers. The questionnaires to the mothers were filled in by an interviewer from the staff of SFI Survey. The fathers could chose to fill in their questionnaire themselves, while the mothers were interviewed, or later (if the latter was preferred, the interviewer left a stamped addressed envelope). 

The questionnaire to mothers as well as to fathers is part of the research data at Statistics Denmark.

Ethnic minority survey

In the survey of ethnic minority children, it was decided to only use a questionnaire to the mothers and none to the fathers. In 1996, 1999 and 2003, the survey sampled children from three countries from which Denmark received many refugees and three countries from which Denmark received many immigrants (Turkey, Ex-Yugoslavia, Sri Lanka, Pakistan, Iraq and Somalia). 

The letter of introduction was available in Danish and in 9 languages spoken in the mother’s country of origin: tamilsk (Sri Lanka), somalisk (Somalia), Arabic (Iraq), Kurdish from Iraq (Arab letters), Kurdish from Turkey (Latin letters), Turkish, Urdu (Pakistan), Serbo-Croatian/Bosnian (Ex-Yugoslavia) and Albanian (Ex-Yugoslavia). The interviewers were responsible that the families received a letter in Danish and in their original language. The letter of introduction is available below in an English translation from Danish.
