description:
The California Department of Health Services conducts surveys of attitudes, behaviors, and media exposure regarding smoking and tobacco use as components of the smoking cessation evaluation effort required by California Assembly Bills AB75, AB99 and AB816. The objective of these surveys is to collect representative statewide data on cigarette smoking behavior, attitudes towards smoking, media exposure to smoking, and use of tobacco products other than cigarettes, from adults and teenagers living in California. These surveys are conducted approximately every three years through contracts with the University of California, San Diego (UCSD) and Westat, Inc. to measure changes in attitudes and behaviors in the California population. The California Tobacco Survey (CTS) was conducted in 1990-1991, 1992, 1993, 1996, 1999 and 2002. The 1990-1991 survey includes an adult pregnancy supplement. Data for each survey year consists of a basic set of three surveys (household screener, adult ages 18+ and adolescent ages 12-17). Household screener surveys interview the initial household respondent and are used to select adult and adolescent survey respondents. Demographic and regional geographi c variables are included in the surveys. The 1996 CTS contains a short adult survey that is similar to the 1993 adult survey and a long adult survey that is similar to the 1992 adult survey. The 1999 and subsequent CTS surveys use an adult survey similar to the 1996 long adult survey. Users of these data should note that variables are deleted, changed or added over time. In addition to basic surveys, a Teen Longitudinal Survey was conducted from 1993 through 1999. The 1993 CTS Teen survey provided the baseline data, with follow-up surveys conducted in 1996 and 1999 (when participants were 18 years old and over). Both the teen-only (1993-1996) and full (1993-1996-1999) surveys have been released as public-use data. Each survey data file contains data for only those individuals interviewed in the relevant waves.
