For respondents age 17 who ever smoked a pipe, but do not currently smoke a pipe, this variable indicates the length of time since the respondent smoked 3 or more pipefuls a day. Respondents could report the number of years or "Under 1 year," or "Never smoked 3 or more per week."


The Field Representative's Manual noted that interviewers should only report the number of whole years since the respondent smoked 3 or more pipefuls a day, rounding down all part years to the last completed year. If the respondent was not sure of the exact time interval, then the range should was recorded.

A pipe was respondent-defined. Note that in the 1970 survey, a respondent representing the family (a proxy) could answer the question associated with PIPESINCE for all other family members over age 17.


This variable is only available for 1970.
