Wave 2 Restricted-use Files Just Released for Population Assessment of Tobacco and Health (PATH) Study

altThe National Addiction & HIV Data Archive Program (NAHDAP) has just released the Wave 2 questionnaire data from the Population Assessment of Tobacco and Health (PATH) Study. These Wave 2 restricted-use files (RUF) will also be accessed via the ICPSR Virtual Data Enclave.

The PATH Study is a collaboration between the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA), National Institutes of Health (NIH), and the Center for Tobacco Products (CTP), Food and Drug Administration (FDA). It was launched in 2011 to inform FDA's regulatory activities under the Family Smoking Prevention and Tobacco Control Act. The PATH Study is an ongoing longitudinal cohort study on tobacco use behavior, attitudes and beliefs, and tobacco-related health outcomes. Data in the first wave were collected from September 2013 to December 2014 and in the second wave from October 2014 to October 2015. Data collection is funded through 2024. 

The current release (ICPSR 36231) only contains the restricted-use versions of the Wave 1 and Wave 2 questionnaire data files. A public-use file (PUF) for Wave 1 is available in a separate data collection (ICPSR 36498). A Wave 2 PUF will be made available later in 2017.

To apply for access to the RUFs, please visit our Path Study page.
