Youth Tobacco Surveillance - United States, 1998-1999

This report provides the first-ever multi-state evaluation data that will enable states to design better tobacco control programs and to evaluate what is and isn't working in their efforts to reduce youth tobacco use. This information - from how many youth have successfully purchased cigarettes to how many would wear a tobacco image - will strengthen states' ability to reduce tobacco use among young people and to prevent the influences that might make them susceptible to tobacco use. The report, Youth Tobacco Surveillance United States, 1998-1999, provides a complete summary of the National Youth Tobacco Survey (NYTS) and state-level data from 13 states that conducted the Youth Tobacco Survey. The survey supplements CDC's Youth Risk Behavior Survey and provides a wide breadth of data collected from middle school (grades 6-8) and high school (grades 9-12) students. The full report will be available online, after 4 p.m. EST, at
