Contact and research methodology. What is Clear Decisions? Clear Decisions is a Syndicated Multi-Media database that incorporates information collected from people aged 14+. The data is collected through a combination of a 30 minute face to face interview, a self completion diary, and fused media currency ratings for TV (OzTam) and Radio (Nielsen). Where does the information come from? Nielsen Media Research has a team of over 400 experienced interviewers who conduct the survey. Every survey placed into the field is personally collected ensuring a high return rate. Clear Decisions is in field 40 out of 52 weeks a year (no surveys conducted late December/early January due to the holiday season). The Clear Decisions database is based on a rolling 12 month survey database (i.e The newest month of data is added and the oldest month is dropped). Databases are updated 10 times per year. What is Radio Probe? Radio Probe is the GfK re-analysis package specifically designed for quick, easy and flexible analysis of radio audience surveys. Where does the information come from? Both paper diaries and e-diaries are used for measuring audiences in the larger radio markets. Eight surveys are done each year in each of the five major capital cities. These cities are surveyed for 39 weeks of the year. In addition other smaller markets are surveyed on an ad hoc basis. Radio diary participants are geographically selected in proportion to the distribution of the population. Each market is split into geographic regions and sub-regions dubbed statistical local areas (SLAs). Each SLA is split further into interviewing areas or census collectors districts (CD's). Homes are then statistically selected and approached within these CD's. A "single source lifestyle questionnaire" is enclosed in the diary. The diary contains relevant lifestyle and purchasing habits/intentions relating to the household. Prepared by Southern Cross Austereo Research.
