Users' Workshop 2007
The Tobacco Use Supplement to the Current Population Survey (TUS-CPS) Users'
Workshop was designed to enhance participants' knowledge of TUS-CPS data and how to use this rich and unique data resource.
Participants learned how to make the most of TUS-CPS data to:
- monitor progress in efforts to control tobacco use;
- evaluate tobacco control programs;
- conduct tobacco-related research; and
- link occupational, economic, time use, or Internet access information to tobacco use data.
The agenda and speakers'
presentations from the workshop are available for download.
TUS-CPS data is available on the national, state, and substate-level.
The workshop was conducted in Minneapolis the day before the National
Conference on Tobacco or Health (NCTOH). We acknowledge the NCTOH sponsors for
providing meeting space for this important workshop.
We would like to thank the speakers, the American Legacy Foundation and the rest of the
Planning Committee for their guidance, and all participants for contributing toward the
success of the workshop.

Research Program, Division of Cancer Control and Population Sciences, National Cancer
Institute in collaboration with survey co-sponsor, Office of Smoking and Health (OSH), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
