For persons who have not lost all of their teeth and who use toothpaste, TPASTEWHITE records whether the brand of toothpaste the person used most often in the past two weeks is marketed for removing smoking stains or whitening teeth.

Persons who reported using toothpaste to brush their teeth were asked to name the brand of toothpaste that they used. The brands were subsequently coded based on whether they were marketed for the removal of smoking stains or for the whitening of teeth.

TPASTEWHITE is part of the Dental Health Supplement. For related variables and more information about this supplement, please use the IPUMS NHIS search function and drop-down menus.
