    • Description:
      "If the United States were to meet the Healthy People 2010 goal of reducing smoking prevalence to 12% among adults and 16% among young people aged 14 through 17 years, more than 7 million premature deaths after 2010 could be prevented. Studies show that investing in state tobacco control programs and implementing effective tobacco control policies significantly reduces cigarette consumption and improves health outcomes. To continue funding state programs, however, legislators, policy makers, and other funders of state programs want to see evidence that the program is effective and that resources are being used wisely. To produce such evidence, state tobacco control programs must evaluate their programs. Good evaluation is the key to persuading policy makers that your program is producing results that will lead to improved health for the community. If good evaluation is key to proving that your program is effective, then selecting the right indicators to measure is key to a good evaluation. That's where this book will help. This publication is a companion to the 2001 publication Introduction to Program Evaluation for Comprehensive Tobacco Control Programs, which is based on the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's (CDC's) Framework for Program Evaluation." - p. iii
