This data collection is comprised of responses from two sets of survey questionnaires, the basic Current Population Survey (CPS) and a survey administered as a supplement to the May 2006 questionnaire on the topic of tobacco use in the United States. The Tobacco Use Supplement (TUS), sponsored by the National Cancer Institute and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, was also administered in August 2006 (ICPSR 24782) and January 2007 (ICPSR 24783). These three supplements comprise the 2006-2007 waves of TUS data. The basic CPS, administered monthly, collects labor force data about the civilian noninstitutional population living in the United States. Moreover, the CPS provides current estimates of the economic status and activities of this population which includes estimates of total employment (both farm and nonfarm), nonfarm self-employed persons, domestics, and unpaid helpers in nonfarm family enterprises, wage and salaried employees, and estimates of total unemployment. Data from the CPS are provided for the week prior to the administration of the survey. The TUS -- like most CPS supplements -- was designed to be a proxy response supplement, meaning a single respondent could provide answers for all eligible household members, provided the respondent was a household member 15 years of age or older. Unique to the TUS design were also a set of self-respondent supplement questions. All household members age 15 years and older who had completed the basic CPS core items were eligible for the May 2006 supplement items. Beginning in August 2006, 15-17 year old respondents were phased out of the TUS and they were entirely omitted from the January 2007 sample due to Census Bureau budget constraints. The TUS consisted of items PEA1 through SINTTP. Self-respondents were eligible for the entire supplement, whereas proxy respondents were only eligible for certain items. Information was collected from proxies on topics such as smoking status (items PEA1–PEA3) and the use of other tobacco-related products, such as pipes, cigars, chewing tobacco, and snuff (items PEAJ1A1–PEAJ1A4 and PEJ2A1–PEJSA4). In addition to these smoking and other tobacco use status questions, self-respondents were queried on the following topics depending on their smoking/tobacco use status (i.e., every day, some days, or former cigarette smokers and/or users of other non-cigarette tobacco products): Smoking history Current cigarette smoking prevalence and consumption Type of cigarettes smoked Price of last pack/carton of cigarettes purchased and state of purchase Medical and dental advice to quit smoking Attempts and intentions to quit smoking cigarettes and/or other forms of tobacco use Awareness of 1-800-QUIT-NOW Workplace smoking policies and smoking rules in the home Attitudes toward smoking in public places Another generally unique feature to the 2006-2007 TUS-CPS was the administration of questions to former smokers on their previous level of addiction, use of quitlines, and advice from health professionals. This feature enables comparisons between characteristics of former smokers (or successful quitters) and current smokers attempting to quit. Demographic information collected include age, sex, race, Hispanic origin, marital status, veteran status, educational attainment, family relationship, occupation, and income.
