Description: The Tobacco Use Supplement to the Current Population Survey (TUS-CPS) is an NCI-sponsored survey of tobacco use that has been administered as part of the US Census Bureau's Current Population Survey in 1992-1993, 1995-1996, 1998-1999, 2000, 2001-2002, 2003, 2006-2007, and 2010-2011. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) was a co-sponsor with NCI from 2001-02 through 2006-07.

The TUS-CPS is a key source of national, state, and sub-state level data from US households regarding smoking, use of tobacco products, and tobacco-related norms, attitudes, and policies. It uses a large, nationally representative sample that contains information on about 240,000 individuals within a given survey period. Other characteristics of the survey are:

civilian, non-institutionalized population;
interviews all eligible household members ages 18 years and older (data for the 1992 - 2006 TUS-CPS are for persons 15 years and older);
state sample sizes range from 1,669 for New Mexico to 18,885 for California (self-response only range is 1,232 for NM to 13,467 for CA);
about 64% of respondents complete the TUS-CPS by telephone and 36% complete it in person; and
mostly self-reports (about 20% are by proxy for a few measures of use).
These data can be used by researchers to:

monitor tobacco control progress;
conduct tobacco-related research, including tobacco health disparities; and
evaluate tobacco control programs.
