    • Description:
      In 1999, the Office on Smoking and Health (OSH), a division in the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), created the National Tobacco Control Program (NTCP) to encourage coordinated efforts nationwide to reduce tobacco‐related diseases and deaths. The program provides funding and technical support to State and territorial health departments for comprehensive tobacco control programs. The four goals of the NTCP are to

      (1) prevent initiation of tobacco use among young people, (2) eliminate non‐smokers’ exposure to second‐hand smoke, (3) promote cessation among adults and young people, and (4) identify and eliminate tobacco‐related health disparities.

      The NATS is the first adult tobacco survey designed within the framework provided by the Key Outcome Indicator (KOI) report. As such, it both includes the established measures identified in the KOI report and introduces measures for the new or revised indicators proposed in the KOI report. The NATS also establishes a comprehensive framework for evaluating both the national and State‐specific tobacco control programs. As described below, the NATS sample design prescribes a roughly equal target number of completes for each State in order to allow analyses by State. Prior to the NATS, 25 States had independently conducted an Adult Tobacco Survey (ATS) with technical assistance and support from CDC’s OSH. After a pilot program in conjunction with the States, OSH started regularly supporting ATS’s in 2002. See (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 2010) for State ATS data from 2003 to 2007. Thus, the primary purpose of the NATS is to evaluate the CDC’s NTCP. OSH developed the NATS to assess the prevalence of tobacco use and the factors promoting and impeding tobacco use among adults.
