CSQUITNO is a 2-digit-numeric variable.
0:Less than 1 day
96:Not in Universe
For sample persons age 18 and older who ever attempted to quit smoking, CSQUITNO reports a numerical response associated with a type of time period (CSQUITTP) that reports the length of time since the person's most recent attempt to quit smoking that lasted for one day or longer. Users should combine these two variables to determine the length of time since the person's last attempt to quit smoking that lasted for one day or longer. Please see Universe tab for detailed information about who was asked this question.
Please see the Universe tab for detailed information on changes in the universe for this question that impact the comparability of this variable across years.
