Youth Tobacco Survey

CDC developed the Youth Tobacco Survey (YTS) to assist states in planning and evaluating their state-based comprehensive tobacco prevention and control programs.

Since 2003, the Youth Tobacco Survey has been co-administered with the Youth Risk Behavior Survey to public school students throughout Hawaii as modules within the Hawaii School Health Survey. The 2000 survey was administered as a stand-alone survey in the spring semester. All other surveys were administered in the fall semester.

Data Notes:

  1. The CDC requires a response rate of at least 60% to weigh state YTS data. Hawaii does not have state-level data for middle schools in 2000 or for high schools in 2003.
  2. YTS Methodology (2000): http://www.cdc.gov/mmwr/PDF/ss/ss5004.pdf
  3. Cell size restriction is applied if the unweighted number of responses to a question is less than 35.
