This two-year longitudinal telephone survey interviewed tobacco smokers aged 16 to 24 years at baseline about their smoking cessation activity and related topics.
Specific aims were:
- To establish national baseline estimates for various indicators of smoking cessation activity among this age group for comparison with future surveys on the same topic;
- To describe their natural history of quitting in a nationally representative sample; and
- To develop statistical models predicting: making a quit attempt, maintaining abstinence, and selecting various quitting strategies.
