Changes by grade level between 2019 and 2020 in the percentage of students who perceived it would be easy to get tobacco products in a physical store as well as online, National Youth Tobacco Survey. Students were asked “How easy do you think it is for people your age to buy tobacco products in a store?” and “How easy do you think it is for people your age to buy tobacco products online?” Categorical response options were “easy,” “somewhat easy,” or “not easy at all.” Any response other than “not easy at all” was classified as perceiving buying tobacco products as easy.
