Codes and Frequencies
For sample respondents age 18 and over, this variable indicates responses to the question, "When you are inside a public place that has no rules about smoking and someone else lights up a cigarette, what are you most likely to do -- ask the person not to smoke, move away, do nothing, or something else?" Respondents were handed a card and asked to choose from responses listed above.
Respondents who were current smokers were also asked whether or not they would smoke in a public place that has no rules about smoking (SMOKPUBSELF).
