Codes and Frequencies
For sample persons age 18 and over, SMOKEOPINBAN reports the respondent's opinion about whether smoking should be allowed in indoor public places.
For related variables, please use the IPUMS NHIS search function and drop-down menus.
Changes in the universe and response categories may affect comparability. The 1992 survey allowed respondents to either agree or disagree that smoking should not be allowed in indoor public spaces, while the 2000 survey allowed respondents to state that smoking should be allowed in all, some, or no indoor public spaces.
Changes in survey design (e.g., quarters in which the supplement was collected) may affect raw frequencies. As always, data users should use the prescribed IHIS weights.
- 1992: Half of sample persons age 18+ in quarters 1 and 2 and in 2 weeks of quarter 3 (excluded from CAEP supplement).
- 2000: Sample adults age 18+.
