CPS, May 2010 - May 2011

This data collection is comprised of responses from two sets of survey questionnaires, the basic Current Population Survey (CPS) and a Tobacco Use Supplement (TUS) survey sponsored by The National Cancer Institute (NCI). The TUS 2010-2011 Wave consists of four collections: May 2010, August 2010, January 2011, and May 2010-May 2011.

The Current Population Survey, administered monthly, is the source of the official government statistics on employment and unemployment. From time to time, additional questions are included on health, education, and previous work experience.

Similar to other CPS supplements, the Tobacco Use Supplement was designed for both proxy and self-respondents. All CPS household members aged 18 and older who had completed CPS core items were eligible for the supplement items. Both proxy and self-respondents were asked about their smoking status and the use of other tobacco products. For self-respondents only, different questions were asked depending on their tobacco use status; for former/current smokers, questions were asked about type of cigarettes smoked, measures of addiction, attempts to quit smoking, methods and treatments used to quit, cost of cigarettes, age initiating everyday cigarette smoking and the state of residence at that time, etc. Current smokers were asked whether the medical and dental community had advised them to quit smoking, and if they were planning to quit in the future. All self-respondents were asked about smoking policy at their work place and their attitudes towards smoking in different locations.

A unique feature of the CPS is its panel design, in which each household in the sample is surveyed for four consecutive months and nine months later for four more consecutive months. NCI took advantage of this panel design to follow-up with respondents from the May 2010 TUS by asking them similar questionnaire items in May 2011, resulting in a one year longitudinal cohort for half the May 2010 sample size.

Demographic information within the study includes age, sex, race, Hispanic origin, marital status, veteran status, educational attainment, family relationship, occupation, and income.

This collection is one of four datasets that comprise the 2010-2011 Tobacco Use Supplements; the other datasets are listed as ICPSR 36384 (May 2010), ICPSR 36409 (August 2010) and ICPSR 36416 (January 2011).

For additional information about past, current, and future National Cancer Institute (NCI) Tobacco Use Supplements and data products and publications utilizing supplement data, please see the NCI Web site and the CPS Web site.

The current CPS sample is selected based on information from the 2000 census. The first stage of the sample design created 2,025 geographic areas called primary sampling units (PSU) in the entire United States. The PSUs were grouped into strata within each state. A total of 824 PSUs were selected for sampling. Approximately 72,000 housing units within the selected PSUs are assigned for interview each month.

A unique feature of the CPS is its panel design, in which each household in the sample is surveyed for four consecutive months, and then for four more consecutive months nine months later. Due to this sampling strategy, a subset of persons who were in sample for any given month of TUS-CPS fielding can be linked with other CPS conducted within about +/- 15 months.

For more information about sampling, please refer to the Technical Documentation.

2016-09-16 ICPSR data undergo a confidentiality review and are altered when necessary to limit the risk of disclosure. ICPSR also routinely creates ready-to-go data files along with setups in the major statistical software formats as well as standard codebooks to accompany the data. In addition to these procedures, ICPSR performed the following processing steps for this data collection:

  • Created variable labels and/or value labels.
  • Created online analysis version with question text.
  • Checked for undocumented or out-of-range codes.

This collection contains two special supplement weights: a supplement non-response adjustment weight (PWNRWGT) and a supplement self-response adjustment weight (PWSRWGT). For more information on weights, please refer to the Technical Documentation.
