Youth Tobacco Survey (YTS)

Youth Tobacco Survey brochure (PDF–1.72 MB)

The YTS Startup Package was developed in response to the continuous technical assistance being requested by states implementing the Youth Tobacco Survey (YTS). The documents are typically sent to states via email in a “zip” file. States receive the master file soon after they've contacted the Office on Smoking and Health (OSH) expressing an interest in conducting a YTS.

To extract the YTS Data,  you must have zip software. Download a trial version of WinZip at
