Surveillance and Evaluation Data Resources for Comprehensive Tobacco Control Programs

Surveillance and Evaluation Data Resources is an at-a-glance compilation of surveillance and evaluation resources for comprehensive tobacco control programs. This booklet is meant to be used by program managers and evaluators in planning and evaluating tobacco control programs. Its primary objective is to provide basic information on each data source to assist state tobacco control programs to identify sources that can help with planning, monitoring, and evaluation. A discussion of when and how to use these resources is addressed in other evaluation workbooks and manuals such as Key Outcome Indicators for Evaluating Comprehensive Tobacco Control Programs and Introduction to Process Evaluation in Tobacco Use Prevention and Control, and during technical assistance events.
