Codes and Frequencies
For sample respondents age 18 and over who were current smokers, this variable indicates responses to the question, "When you are inside a public place that has no rules about smoking, what are you most likely to do?" Respondents were handed a card and asked to choose from responses of "light up a cigarette and smoke if you wish," "look around to see if others are smoking and then light up," "ask if others would mind," or "just not smoke." They could also specify another action.
All respondents, regardless of smoking status, were also asked what they would do if they were inside a public place that has no rules about smoking and someone else lights up a cigarette (SMOKPUBOTH).
