Cost savings are the primary advantage of using address-based sampling (ABS) over field enumeration (FE) for in-person surveys of the civilian, non-institutionalized population. These cost savings are tempered by research which indicates that FE provides more complete coverage than ABS, especially in rural areas. We developed and piloted a candidate sampling frame for the National Survey on Drug Use and Health (NSDUH) that uses ABS supplemented with a frame-linking procedure in area segments where we anticipate adequate ABS coverage and FE in segments where we anticipate poor ABS coverage. The objective of the candidate frame is to lower costs without sacrificing coverage levels of the current NSDUH sampling frame which is based solely on FE. We report on the trade-offs between coverage and cost savings as area segments are shifted from FE to ABS.
