Description
  • Abstract

    The Current Population Survey Tobacco Use Supplement data collection from May 2015 is comprised of responses from two sets of survey questionnaires, the basic Current Population Survey (CPS) and a Tobacco Use Supplement (TUS) survey. The TUS 2014-2015 Wave consists of three collections: July 2014, January 2015, and May 2015. The CPS, administered monthly, is the source of the official government statistics on employment and unemployment. From time to time, additional questions are included on health, education, and previous work experience. The Tobacco Use Supplement to the CPS is a National Cancer Institute sponsored survey of tobacco use that has been administered as part of the US Census Bureau's CPS approximately every 3-4 years since 1992-1993. Similar to other CPS supplements, the Tobacco Use Supplement was designed for both proxy and self-respondents. All CPS household members age 18 and older who had completed CPS core items were eligible for the supplement items. A new feature for the 2014-2015 cycle included random selection of self-interviewed respondents in larger households to reduce respondent burden. If the household had only 1 supplement eligible member then that person was selected for self-interview. If the household had only 2 supplement eligible members, then both of them were selected for self-interview. If the household had 3 or 4 supplement eligible members, then 2 of them were randomly selected for self-interview and the remaining were interviewed by proxy. If the household had more than 4 supplement eligible members, then 3 of them were randomly selected for self-interview and the rest of the eligible respondents were interviewed by proxy. Those selected for self-interview were eligible for the entire supplement, whereas proxy respondents were only eligible for an abbreviated interview. Occasionally, those persons to be interviewed by proxy, if available for self- interview, were interviewed directly but asked the abbreviated proxy path questions. Both proxy and self-respondents were asked about their smoking status and the use of other tobacco products. For self-respondents only, different questions were asked depending on their tobacco use status: for former/current smokers, questions were asked about type of cigarettes smoked, measures of addiction, attempts to quit smoking, methods and treatments used to quit smoking, and if they were planning to quit in the future. All self-respondents were asked about smoking policy at their work place and their attitudes towards smoking in different locations. Demographic information within this collection includes age, sex, race, Hispanic origin, marital status, veteran status, immigration status, educational background, employment status, occupation, and income.
  • Abstract

    The Tobacco use supplements were created for researchers to monitor tobacco control progress, conduct tobacco-related research including health disparities, and to evaluate tobacco control programs. The 2014-2015 wave of the tobacco use supplements serve to gather detailed information on non-cigarette tobacco products, including emerging ones, information about use of flavored non-cigarette tobacco products, and attitudes towards smoking in multi-unit housing. The purpose of the Current Population Survey is to collection information on the employment situation, and to collect information on demographic characteristics that will serve as update to similar information collected in the decennial census for policymakers and legislators.
  • Methods

    The Tobacco Use questions making up the Supplement for the CPS were asked of any person age 18 years or older in the household in May 2015. A new feature of the 2014-2015 wave included random selection of self interviewed respondents in larger households to reduce respondent burden. If the household had only 1 supplement eligible member then that person was selected for self interview. If the household had only 2 supplement eligible members, then both of them were selected for self interview. If the household had 3 or 4 supplement eligible members, then 2 of them were randomly selected for self interview and the remaining were interviewed by proxy. If the household had more than 4 supplement eligible members, then 3 of them were randomly selected for self- interview and the rest of the eligible respondents were interviewed by proxy. Those selected for self-interview were eligible for the entire supplement, whereas proxy respondents were only eligible for an abbreviated interview. Occasionally, those persons to be interviewed by proxy, if available for self- interview, were interviewed directly but asked the abbreviated proxy path questions.
  • Methods

    ICPSR data undergo a confidentiality review and are altered when necessary to limit the risk of disclosure. ICPSR also routinely creates ready-to-go data files along with setups in the major statistical software formats as well as standard codebooks to accompany the data. In addition to these procedures, ICPSR performed the following processing steps for this data collection: Created variable labels and/or value labels.; Created online analysis version with question text.; Checked for undocumented or out-of-range codes..

    Datasets:

    • DS1: Current Population Survey, May 2015 [United States]: Tobacco Use Supplement (TUS)
Temporal Coverage
  • Time period: 2014--2015
  • 2014 / 2015
  • Collection date: 2015-05
Geographic Coverage
  • United States
Sampled Universe
For May 2015, the universe is person level for all persons aged 18 and above in the civilian noninstitutionalized population of the United States and completed the labor force interview. Smallest Geographic Unit: City
Sampling
The current CPS sample is selected based on 2000 census information. The first stage of the 2000 sample design created 2,025 geographic areas called primary sampling units (PSUs) in the entire United States. These PSUs were grouped into strata within each state. A total of 824 PSUs were selected for sampling. The second stage of the sample design selected housing units within these PSUs. Approximately 72,000 housing units are assigned for interview each month, of which about 60,000 are occupied and thus eligible for interview. The interviewed households contain approximately 108,000 persons 15 years old and over, approximately 27,000 children 0-14 years old, and about 450 Armed Forces members living with civilians either on or off base within these households. Additional sampling information can be found in the Technical Documentation.
Collection Mode
