Research Domain Information

Release Date:

Definition

This measure consists of questions used to determine the tobacco product brand and type used by the respondent most often in the last 30 days.

Purpose

This measure is used to assess the type and brand of tobacco product used by respondents.

Selection Rationale

The Population Assessment of Tobacco and Health (PATH) Study is a nationally representative, longitudinal cohort study of nonusers and users of tobacco products and those at risk for tobacco use across the United States. Respondents 12 years old and up are asked questions on tobacco use, attitudes, and health, and biospecimens (buccal cell, urine, and blood) are collected from adults. The PATH Study was implemented to provide an evidence base for assessing and monitoring the Food and Drug Administration’s regulatory actions in meeting its mandate under the Family Smoking Prevention and Tobacco Control Act. Regulatory domains include product standards, new and modified risk products, health warnings, and health education campaigns.
