Major content changes to the 2018-2019 series included capturing additional information on current cigarette use among adult respondents between the ages of 18 and 34; adding items on use of cessation tools including nicotine replacement therapy, anti-depressants, and in-person counseling and support groups; and removing items on use of dissolvable tobacco products.

Data and SAS Read-in Files

Datasets are provided below in .dat/ASCII format. SAS programs for creating a permanent SAS dataset from the .dat and ASCII text files (called “SAS Read-In Files”) are provided below. Each program reads all variables from the corresponding core and supplement and creates a SAS dataset containing all the variables.

Code for Use with Other Programs

Code to read in the data files and replicate weights to Stata and R-Studio are provided below. Please review the notes at the top of each program for more information.

Replicate Weights

Links to the TUS-CPS Replicate Weight Files, including self-response and non-response weights, are provided below. Links also contain SAS read-in files (labeled “SAS Input Statements”) for each set of replicate weights.
