Licence and permissions

In the spirit of open-access, the LMUP is free to use (there is no licence agreement and no registration or permission is required) but we ask that you cite the main paper of the development and evaluation study (Barrett et al. 2004) and any other appropriate methodological LMUP papers (e.g. evaluations of the LMUP in whatever appropriate context). It is important to ensure the LMUP used is valid.

Modes of administration

Some of the above translations have also changed mode of administration, usually because of levels of literacy in the target population. One study, the Contessa Study in the UK, has carried out a telephone interviewer-administered (or CATI) version of the LMUP. This version of the LMUP has not been evaluated. Further information can be found in NatCen’s technical report from page 50 (Contessa Technical Report)
