Protocol - Youth Cigarette Purchase Behaviors and Experiences

Add to My Toolkit
Description:

This protocol includes five questions from the University of Michigan and National Institutes of Health’s 2010 Monitoring the Future (MTF) project survey that capture data related to youth purchase behaviors and experiences.

Specific Instructions:

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.
