Child, Adolescent, Adult

Specific Instructions:

The Working Group (WG) recommends the following:

  • Questions from both the Youth and Adult Population Assessment of Tobacco and Health (PATH) questionnaires are included in this protocol, and the WG believes that questions may be asked of all respondents (12 years of age and up).
  • To answer these questions, investigators will need to determine whether a respondent has a regular brand of tobacco. To do so, the WG is recommending that investigators add the Use of a Regular Brand of Tobacco Toolkit measure.
  • The WG recommends that Question 9 be asked of all respondents instead of only "Current or Experimental Current tobacco users who do not have a regular brand."

In addition, the WG recommends that investigators consider CLEARLY defining "tobacco products" BY NOTING WHETHER THAT DEFINITION INCLUDES OR EXCLUDES certain types of related products BASED ON THESE CRITERIA: products that are intended for human consumption; made or derived from tobacco; typically contain nicotine, but sometimes do not; and are not Food and Drug Administration-approved tobacco cessation products.

Definition

Instrument used to assess exposure to tobacco-product price promotions, including (but not limited to) lower price paid or free tobacco products, discounted prices when buying multiple tobacco product units, and free or discounted tobacco product with purchase of tobacco products.

Purpose

The purpose of this measure is to assess self-reported consumer observations of tobacco-product price promotions and the use of price promotions.

Selection Rationale

The Population Assessment of Tobacco and Health (PATH) Study is a nationally representative, in-person 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.
