In 1991 vond het baselineonderzoek plaats bij 18.973 respondenten in de stad Eindhoven en omliggende steden.
Twee deelsteekproeven van respondenten uit de baseline werden uitgenodigd om deel te nemen aan aanvullende diepte-interviews.
De eerste deelsteekproef was een willekeurige steekproef.
De tweede deelsteekproef omvatte een oververtegenwoordiging van chronisch zieke personen, gebaseerd op zelfgerapporteerde informatie over chronische ziekten zoals coronaire hartziekten, diabetes mellitus, chronische obstructieve longziekte (COPD) of rugklachten.

In 1991, 1997, 2004, 2011 en 2014 zijn beide deelsteekproeven geïnterviewd en/of onderzocht. In 2004 en 2014 zijn aanvullende steekproeven gedaan om de onderzoekspopulatie te versterken.
In 1993 en 1995 werd de eerste (willekeurige) deelsteekproef geïnterviewd. In 1992, 1993, 1994 en 1995 werd de tweede (chronisch zieke) deelsteekproef geïnterviewd.
Daarnaast werden diepte-interviews gehouden in 2005 onder de subgroep van de 2004 onderzoekspopulatie, in 2012 onder de subgroep van de 2011 onderzoekspopulatie en in 2016 onder de subgroep van de 2014 onderzoekspopulatie.
