Component Description

The Smoking and Tobacco use (SMQ) section includes an extensive array of questions on tobacco use including cigarettes and other forms of tobacco. Questions are from previous NHANES questionnaires and other federal surveys.

Topics:

Eligible Sample

Participants 20+ years.

Interview Setting and Mode of Administration

The SMQ section was administered in the home by a trained household interviewer.

Quality Assurance & Quality Control

Questionnaire data are systematically reviewed for logical, processing, and data input errors on a periodic basis during data collection.

The computer-assisted personal interview mode allows for built in consistency checks, and hard and soft edit checks to reduce the number of keying entry errors.

Data Processing and Editing

SMDUPCA: When cigarette pack was seen, interviewers entered the Universal Product Code (UPC), the numbers beneath the bar code found on each cigarette pack. The code was then matched to the Cigarette Universal Product Code Database, 2005 which included the UPC, 12 digit codes derived from AC Nielson supermarket scanner data1. UPC numbers that were incomplete and could not be matched were assigned a code “No Match.” In rare instances, complete UPCs with other identifiable information on the brand name, verified on the Internet, were included.

SMD100BR: When a cigarette pack was seen, the interviewer attempted to match the UPC code with the Cigarette Universal Product Code Database which included the brand name, sub brand and qualifiers describing the cigarette. If the cigarette pack was not available or if a match could not be made because the UPC was incomplete or not recognized, a second match was attempted using an auxiliary data base prepared from the Federal Trade Commission Report: “Tar, Nicotine, and Carbon Monoxide of the Smoke of 1294 Varieties of Domestic Cigarettes for the Year 1998,” (FTC, 2000). In rare instances, partial cigarette brands that were reported but could not be matched to either data base were included.

SMD100TR, SMD100NI, SMD100CD: Tar, nicotine and carbon monoxide content was obtained from the Federal Trade Commission Report: “Tar, Nicotine, and Carbon Monoxide of the Smoke of 1294 Varieties of Domestic Cigarettes for the Year 1998,” (FTC, 2000). These data were not available for all cigarette brands.

Analytic Notes

Additional questions on smoking and tobacco use, including questions for youths ages 12-19 years, can be found in the MEC Interview.
