    • Description:
      "The Foodborne Diseases Active Surveillance Network (FoodNet) is a collaborative network established in cooperation with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's Emerging Infections Program; the state health departments in California, Colorado, Connecticut, Georgia, Maryland, Minnesota, New York, Oregon, and Tennessee; the Food and Drug Administration's Center for Food Safety and Applied Nutrition; and the United States Department of Agriculture's Food Safety Inspection Service. The FoodNet Population Survey was conducted by telephone in the nine population-based FoodNet sites (CA, CO, CT, GA, MD, MN, NY, OR, and TN) from March 2002 through February 2003. The total population of these nine sites, according to the 2002 United States Census Bureau estimates, was 37,961,688 persons. The 2002 Population Survey was the fourth 12-month FoodNet Population Survey. Previous surveys were conducted in 1996, 1998, and 2000. With the exception of the geographic area, the survey methods were similar in each survey. The survey was administered by MACRO International using standard Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (BRFSS) methodology. Each month, persons were contacted using a single-stage random-digit dialing technique called Genesys-ID. This sampling system allows for the removal of nonworking and business telephones. One respondent was randomly selected per household contacted. A computer algorithm was used to select one household member, based upon the total number of males and females in the household. All age groups were eligible for inclusion: if a child #12 years of age was selected, a parent was interviewed about the child's exposures. In every site, approximately the same number of interviews were conducted each month. The study was restricted to persons who spoke English and Spanish. Frequencies included in this report are unweighted. (Weighting procedures compensate for unequal probabilities of selection and allow population estimates to be made.) The questionnaire used collected information on exposures that might be associated with foodborne illnesses and information on the occurrence and severity of gastrointestinal illnesses. This report summarizes information from the 2002 FoodNet Population Survey " - p. i
