Surveillance and Evaluation Data Resources is an at-a-glance compilation of surveillance and evaluation resources for comprehensive tobacco control programs. This booklet is meant to be used by program managers and evaluators in planning and evaluating tobacco control programs. Its primary objective is to provide basic information on each data source to assist state tobacco control programs to identify sources that can help with planning, monitoring, and evaluation. A discussion of when and how to use these resources is addressed in other evaluation workbooks and manuals such as Key Outcome Indicators for Evaluating Comprehensive Tobacco Control Programs and Introduction to Process Evaluation in Tobacco Use Prevention and Control, and during technical assistance events. These and other resources are available at http://www.cdc.gov/tobacco/tobacco_control_programs/surveillance_evaluation/index.htm.
Users of this booklet are encouraged to review and assess the appropriateness of these resources in meeting their program’s needs. The data sources listed here provide a wide variety of tobacco-related information. For example, restaurant and worksite surveys address environmental policies and indicators; the Youth Tobacco Survey, Adult Tobacco Survey, and media evaluation surveys address individual knowledge, attitudes, and behaviors; and the cancer registries and hospital discharge records address health outcomes. Given that the field of tobacco control continues to evolve over time, it is not possible to provide an exhaustive summary of currently available data sources. Therefore, this booklet outlines only the most relevant and comprehensive resources available for achieving state tobacco control program objectives.
Sources that are used frequently and are compatible across states are often employed to help states develop tobacco program objectives. Data from these sources can be used to compare program impact and outcomes with those of other states and the nation as a whole. Data from some of the listed resources are restricted and require purchase.
