CWCB Drought and Water Supply Assessment

Chapter 10

Administration of the Drought & Water Supply Assessment
Nina Nichols, Sanjit Kundu, Heather Larson and Tracy Bouvette


This chapter presents the methodologies used to administer the Drought & Water Supply Assessment instrument from mid-January to late-April 2003. The methodologies included the combined use of mailings, telephone calls and internet based surveys to reach participants in all major river basins across all identified water use types. As participation increased from January through April, analyses were performed in real time to evaluate the geographic distribution and water use segmentation of the retained data. Finally, participation was evaluated not only on the number and distribution of participants, but also on total water use represented in the assessment versus total water use in the State, using figures provided by the assessment participants.

“The findings can be regarded with considerable confidence since the sample size allows 95% certainty that the figures reported are within four percentage points (plus or minus) of what they would be if all Colorado water users had been interviewed.”
