Live landline and cell phone interviews were conducted in English and Spanish according to the respondents’ preferences. Interviews took an average of 17 minutes to complete. Interviewing took place on weekend days and weekday nights May 11-20, 2018. The sampling error for May 2018, taking design effects from weighting into consideration, is ±3.1 percent at the 95 percent confidence level for the total unweighted sample of 1,702 adults. This means that 95 times out of 100, the results will be within 3.1 percentage points of what they would be if all adults in California were interviewed. Sampling error is only one type of error to which surveys are subject. Results may also be affected by factors such as question wording, question order, and survey timing.

Live landline and cell phone interviews were conducted in English and Spanish according to the respondents’ preferences. Interviews took an average of 17 minutes to complete. Interviewing took place on weekend days and weekday nights May 11-20, 2018. The sampling error for May 2018, taking design effects from weighting into consideration, is ±3.1 percent at the 95 percent confidence level for the total unweighted sample of 1,702 adults. This means that 95 times out of 100, the results will be within 3.1 percentage points of what they would be if all adults in California were interviewed. Sampling error is only one type of error to which surveys are subject. Results may also be affected by factors such as question wording, question order, and survey timing.
