49. No counts
I don't believe there are any raw counts of refusals/missed interviews, however, there is the weighting numbers for each person. I mentioned earlier in this thread that the largest weighting in the data is for those 65 and older and someone responded that they believed that that was a built-in weighting due to the reduced liklihood of someone older going through the whole exit poll interview process.

The only other interesting thing they put in the data was a variable called Backside. This noted whether the person filled out both the front and backside of the exit poll. It was noted with 1 if they did both and 2 if they did not.

I hope that's helpful.
