Life Stage:

Child, Adolescent, Adult

Participants:

Adolescents and adults (12+)

Specific Instructions:

Although the National Survey on Drug Use and Health (NSDUH) only asks about Marlboro in Q5, the PhenX Working Group (WG) feels other brands could be asked about as well.

While the source instrument was developed to be administered by computer, the WG acknowledges these questions can be administered in a noncomputerized format.

Selection Rationale

The protocol from the 2014 National Survey on Drug Use and Health (NSDUH) was selected because this survey is the primary combined source of information on the use of drugs, alcohol, and tobacco in the civilian, noninstitutionalized population of the United States. The study was initiated in 1971, and it is currently conducted on an annual basis. NSDUH is a survey that includes substance use and is administered to individuals aged 12 and older.
