Specific Instructions:

The working group recommends that when investigators are asking questions about e-cigarettes or electronic smoking devices, they consider providing study participants with specific examples of devices of interest and clarify which attributes. For instance, do they care about all types of electronic smoking devices or just some of them (e.g., tank systems, vapor pens, vapes, e-hookah, e-cigars)? Do they care whether they are disposable or rechargeable devices, and whether they contain nicotine, do not contain nicotine, or either? As new products emerge, investigators should consider their inclusion as well.

The table included in the protocol text not only relates to user group definitions for cigarettes, but applies to all the tobacco product types listed within the protocol (cigarettes, e-cigarettes, cigars, pipe tobacco, hookah and shisha, smokeless tobacco and dissolvables.

In order for the investigator to determine which user group(s) the respondent belongs to, the working group has included the item numbers for each tobacco product type in the table below.

Definition

Instrument used to determine a respondent’s tobacco product use and regularity of use.

Purpose

The purpose of this measure is to assess a respondent’s use and regularity of use of 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 or older 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.
