BMJOPEN2014005397F1: Flow chart (IDD, iodine deficiency disorder; IS, iodised salt; NIS, non-iodised salt).

Mentions: The flow chart is presented in figure 1. The survey included 235 districts of 120 main urban zones in 23 cities. In total, 446 direction numbers were chosen, and 24 557 telephone numbers were dialled, of which 13 215 (53.8%) were valid and 11 342 were invalid numbers. An invalid number was a number that was not used as a telephone number. Among the 13 215 valid telephone numbers, 4833 successfully finished the questionnaire, 1949 answered the phone but refused to answer the questions and 6433 telephones were not answered. The answered numbers (successes and rejections) were 6782 and accounted for 51.3% of the valid numbers. The total response rate (4833/(4833+1949)×100%) was 71.3% (figure 2).
