Selection Rationale

The protocol from the Tobacco Use Supplement to the Current Population Survey (TUS-CPS) was chosen because it is a large survey (each survey wave includes about 240,000 respondents) of the U.S. non-institutionalized civilian population of adults that has been conducted since 1992 in a consistent manner.
