Codes and Frequencies
For sample persons age 18 and older, QUITWKUSE reports if, in the past year, the person has participated in a quit smoking program that was made available by his/her employer. Please see universe tab for detailed information about who was asked this question.
There are minor changes in the universe statement between years, as outlined in the Universe tab, which impact the comparability of this variable over time. Users are advised to consider the impact that changes in the universe may have on their analyses when using data from multiple years.
