Definition

Instrument used to determine whether a respondent has a regular brand of tobacco.

Purpose

The purpose of this measure is to determine if a respondent has a preferred brand for the following tobacco products: Cigarettes, e-cigarettes, cigars, pipe tobacco, hookah and shisha tobacco, smokeless tobacco, and dissolvable tobacco.

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.
