Description:

This protocol uses tobacco control legislative data from the American Nonsmokers’ Rights Foundation’s (ANRF’s) U.S. Tobacco Control Laws Database, a standardized system and national collection of local ordinances and board of health regulations containing provisions on clean indoor air, restrictions on youth access to tobacco, tobacco sales and distribution restrictions, tobacco advertising and promotion restrictions, tobacco excise taxes, and conditional use permits.

Protocol:

  • 100% smokefree ordinances (non-hospitality worksites, restaurants, bars)
  • Preemption of local smokefree air laws
  • Excise taxes on tobacco products
  • Restrictions on minors’ access to tobacco products
  • Marketing/advertising restrictions
  • Restrictions on other (non-cigarette) tobacco products

Specific Instructions:

With the exception of lists of current local jurisdictions that are 100% smoke free, all American Nonsmokers’ Rights Foundation (ANRF) data are proprietary. To purchase data on additional topics from the database, please call ANRF for a quote at 510-841-3032, or e-mail the Ordinance Database Team at TobaccoLawsDatabase@no-smoke.org.

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.

A measure of tobacco use prevention and control policies at the local-level.

Purpose

This measure examines tobacco use prevention and control policies.
