Summary 

The WHO Multi-country Survey Study (MCSS) was carried out in 61 countries from 2000 to 2001. The study was an exercise in developing research instruments for assessing the health of individuals, adult mortality, health system responsiveness, and household health care expenditures. The survey modes, which varied from country to country, included in-person individual interviews, telephone surveys, and mail surveys.

Canada used both the postal and Computer Assisted Telephone Interview (CATI) survey mode. The postal mode had a final sample of 816 adults (55% response rate), while the telephone mode had a final sample of 778 (24.6% response rate). Neither survey mode sampled populations in the Yukon, Northwest Territories, or Nunavut provinces.
