Codes and Frequencies
For sample adults age 18 and older who have smoked at least 100 cigarettes and have not smoked in at least the past 30 days, FSQGUMEV indicates whether respondents used nicotine gum to quit smoking completely. Please see the Universe tab for detailed information about who was asked this question.
Minor changes in the universe for this question decrease direct comparability between years. Please see the Universe tab for more information on changes in question universe between years.
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.
