This session was a deep dive into three key resources for research related to cancer control among youth: Classification of Laws Associated with School Students (CLASS), Monitoring the Future, and the Tobacco Use Supplement to the Current Population Survey (TUS-CPS). Invited experts covered reasons for choosing these specific resources, key strategies for use, challenges and analytic issues, associated analytic issues, and opportunities for innovation.
