Description

The Adult Tobacco Survey (ATS) was developed by the New York Tobacco Control Program (NY TCP) in partnership with RTI International, the independent evaluator for the NY TCP. The survey has been fielded continually since June 2003 to the non-institutionalized adult population of New York State, aged 18 years or older. Researchers agree to: 1. Use the data for statistical reporting and analysis only. 2. Make no attempt to re-identify survey respondents by any means including but not limited to linking the data with any other data set that may provide the ability to identify a participant in the survey. 3. Data tables produced will protect confidentiality of the survey respondent following acceptable practices. 4. The requester will include a disclaimer that credits any analyses, interpretations, or conclusions reached to the author and not New York State Department of Health (NYSDOH).

Notes
The survey is designed to provide timely surveillance and evaluation data to inform and measure progress of the New York State Tobacco Control Program. The ATS assesses (a) adult tobacco-related behavior, attitudes, and beliefs; (b) tobacco purchasing and cessation attempt behavior; (c) health status and health-related problems; (d) attitudes toward and exposure to secondhand smoke; (e) perceptions of risk related to tobacco use; (f) exposure to tobacco advertising or anti-tobacco health communications; and (g) attitudes toward other smoking policies. Some key survey items have been included since inception (e.g., current smoking status); some questions may be included for a shorter period of time to assess a time-sensitive issue (e.g., support for tax increase), and other questions may be rotated in and out of the survey instrument as deemed necessary.
