Preventing Initiation of Tobacco Use: Outcome Indicators for Comprehensive Tobacco Control Programs—2014

Preventing Initiation of Tobacco Use: Outcome Indicators for Comprehensive Tobacco Control Programs-2014

This publication is the first in a series of updates to the 2005 publication, Key Outcome Indicators for Evaluating Comprehensive Tobacco Control Programs. This update provides a revised logic model and set of outcome indicators for Goal Area 1 of the National Tobacco Control Program. Until additional updates to the other goal areas are available, this guide should be used in combination with outcome indicators from the 2005 publication that address eliminating nonsmokers’ exposure to secondhand smoke and promoting quitting among adults and young people.

Indicators are organized by the evidence-based preventing initiation logic model. Detailed information is provided for each indicator, including indicator definition, example data sources and measures, and graphic depictions of expert panel ratings across various criteria, such as overall quality and resource utilization.
