Codes and Frequencies
For sample respondents age 18 and over who have worked in the past 2 weeks for a private company or the federal, state, or local government, and worked mainly indoors,
SMOKWORKAREA indicates whether smoking was allowed in the respondent's work area.
In 1991, respondents were asked if anyone smoked in their immediate area the past two weeks. In 2000, the reference period was one week and the question did not refer to the "immediate area."
For 1991, the universe for this question was mainly respondents who worked in an office environment, rather than just "indoors."
