For sample adults age 18 and older who have smoked at least 100 cigarettes but have not smoked in at least the past 30 days, FSQBOOKEV indicates whether respondents used instructions in a pamphlet or book to quit smoking completely. Please see the Universe tab for detailed information about who was asked this question.


Changes in survey design (e.g., quarters in which the supplement was collected) may affect raw frequencies, but do not affect comparability of the variable. As always, data users should use the prescribed IPUMS NHIS weights.
