National Youth Smoking Cessation Survey, 2003-2005

 A woman smokes a cigarette outside a building, at dawn.

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:

  1. 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;
  2. To describe their natural history of quitting in a nationally representative sample; and
  3. To develop statistical models predicting: making a quit attempt, maintaining abstinence, and selecting various quitting strategies.


These data are available at the Health and Medical Care Archives, ICPSR, University of Michigan.
