Assessment
Interview: face-to-face
Insofar possible, a face-to-face interview was conducted with both the anchor respondent and their (ex-)spouse, who is also an anchor respondent. Within this anchor relationship, one target child was selected. If living inside the household and over the age of 10, the child was also contacted for a face-to-face interview. If living outside the household and over the age of 18, the target child recieved a mail questionnaire. Similarly, one parent of each respondent in the anchor relationship received a mail questionnaire, as well as a new live-in partner of a divorced anchor respondent.
