Protocol - Self-reported Exposure to Smoking on Television and in the Movies

Add to My Toolkit
Description

This protocol uses one item from the Survey of Teen Opinions about Retail Environments (STORE), a school-based survey that included 1,681 adolescents (ages 11-14 years). This item assesses perceived exposure to people who smoke in movies or on television.

Specific Instructions

For the purposes of scoring, the WG recommends that the following scale be used: Never = 1, Rarely = 2, Sometimes = 3, and Often = 4

In addition, the WG recommends that investigators consider clearly defining "tobacco products" by noting whether that definition includes or excludes certain types of related products based on these criteria: products that are intended for human consumption; made or derived from tobacco; typically contain nicotine, but sometimes do not; and are not Food and Drug Administration-approved tobacco-cessation products.

Adolescents (ages 11-14).

Selection Rationale

Consensus documents (e.g., Surgeon General reports, National Cancer Institute monographs) indicate that exposure to smoking in movies promotes smoking initiation, and the World Health Organization recommends a variety of policies to reduce youth exposure to tobacco imagery in entertainment media. Fine-grained assessment of exposure to tobacco in films (e.g., Beach Method) requires a significant amount of resources and survey questions that are likely beyond the scope of most tobacco research. This single item selected here shows evidence of predictive validity amongst young adolescents.
