## As the randomly selected telephone numbers are called repeatedly till answer is received, the chance of selection bias is reduced.However, due to telephone survey, the section of the population without telephones cannot be reached, introducing selection bias from a different angle.Moreover, if the survey is carried out within a short time of the year and not over the whole year, it might over-represent the opinions of individuals born at a certain time of the year, while under-representing those born at other times. This again leads to selection bias.It is also known that people may not always respond truthfully, thus leading to nonresponse bias
