What Do the 2018-2019 TUS Data Say about Tobacco Use?

The data tables listed here provide examples of the type of information that researchers can obtain from the TUS. They are based on analyses of the 2018-19 TUS-CPS data files. All tables refer to self responses from self reports only.

Table 1: Smoking Status.

Table 2: Home and Workplace Environments in Which Smoking is Not Allowed.

Table 3: E-Cigarette Use.

When using these tables, please note that:

  • Several federal surveys are used to track tobacco use in the US population, each with slightly different assessments. These tables are examples of analyses of the 2018-19 data file that are available from the US Census Bureau.
  • The table data are weighted for the sample design and for CPS Smoking Supplement self-response.
  • Tabled values may not sum to 100% due to rounding.
  • These tables contain simple parameter estimates (percentages and means), and measures of variance in the form of 95% confidence intervals. These confidence intervals were estimated using replicate weights. Alternative estimates of variance and confidence intervals can be made for simple analyses using Attachment 16 of the 2018-19 Tobacco Use Supplement File of the US Census Bureau Technical Documentation. Replicate weights necessary for more complex analysis such as regression or analysis of variance are available from NCI.
