During the 1960's the question of influencing people's smoking habits was treated several times in the Norwegian Parliament. Important documents for the justification of a more restrictive policy with respect to the marketing of tobacco products "Påvirkning av røykeadferd", The Norwegian Cancer Society 1967, where the proposal to build an administration that would take care of the work on smoking and health was raised. Report to the Storting nr. 62, 1968-1969, that proposed a ban on cigarette advertising, a nd Recommandation of the Social Commitee nr. 143, 1969-1970. The National Council on Tobacco and Health was created in 1971, and the same year came "Innstilling til lov om restriktive tiltak ved omsetning av tobakksvarer" (The Tobacco Act), enacted as law nr. 14 og March 9th 1973 and implemented from July 1st 1975. On behalf of the National Council on Tobacco and Health Statistics Norway has since 1973 conducted smoking habits surveys as an addition to the Labour Force Surveys every 4th quarter. In 1974 and in 1975 the Smoking habits survey was conducted each quarter of the year. The purpose was to obtain information on the status and changes in Norwegian smoking habits, mainly as research material for the National Council on Tobacco and Health. From 1992 to 2004, questions on smoking habits have largely been asked in connection with Statistics Norway's Omnibus Surveys. The Travel and Holiday Surveys is a continuation of the Omnibus Surveys. The main purpose of these surveys is to identify Norwegians' travel habits, and to ensure the collection of other official statistics. Questions about smoking habits are included in these surveys. This cumulative file includes all the smoke questions from the Smoking Habits Surveys from 1973-2010. The questions that are repeated are merged so that one can study changes over time. Variable names are changed so that the variables that are equal have the same variable name. This file contains questions about smoking habits asked in connection with the Smoking Habits Survey, 1982.
