Codes and Frequencies
For sample adults over age 18 who have ever smoked at least 100 cigarettes in their life and are former smokers or who have not smoked in the past 30 days AND have ever smoked every day for at least 6 months, FSMOKDALYG1Y reports whether the respondent smoked within the past year or one or more years ago. It is a follow-up question to a question on the duration of time since the respondent last smoked cigarettes every day.
The length of time is provided in two variables: FSMOKDALYLNO reports the number (from 1 to 95) corresponding to the time unit (in days, weeks, months or years) provided in FSMOKDALYLTP. Respondents who indicated it was 1 year or 12 months ago were asked the question for FSMOKDALYG1Y("Was it within the past year or a year or more ago?").
Related variables are included in the 1992 survey.
