Trends in Smoking Prevalence by Race based on the Tobacco Use Supplement to the Current Population Survey

  title={Trends in Smoking Prevalence by Race based on the Tobacco Use Supplement to the Current Population Survey},
  author={William W. Davis and Anne M Hartman and James Todd Gibson},
The Tobacco Use Supplement to the Current Population Survey (TUS-CPS) can be used to obtain U.S. adult current smoking prevalence estimates for the recent past. In this paper, we use the TUS-CPS to evaluate current smoking prevalence rates and trends by race/ethnicity and gender for the period 1992 to 2003. The TUS-CPS adult sample size of approximately 240,000/year allows accurate estimates of current smoking rates for small race/ethnicity groups, which have often been ignored due to… 

Figures and Tables from this paper

E-cigarette use and associated changes in population smoking cessation: evidence from US current population surveys
The substantial increase in e-cigarette use among US adult smokers was associated with a statistically significant increase in the smoking cessation rate at the population level, and these findings need to be weighed carefully in regulatory policy making regarding e-cigarettes and in planning tobacco control interventions.
Changes in cigarette smoking initiation, cessation, and relapse among U.S. adults: a comparison of two longitudinal samples
Transitions between smoking states are complex and increasingly unstable, requiring a holistic, population-based perspective to understand the stocks and flows that ultimately dictate the public health impact of cigarette smoking behavior.
Rates of delay and probability discounting of northern plains American Indians discounting Indian and majority culture-specific outcomes.
The present study represents the first attempt to measure probability discounting in AI participants and is the first to show differences in this type of decision making, and represents a step forward in understanding when risk-averse versus risk-prone decisions are made, and how those decisions are related to acculturation in AIs.
National trends in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander smoking and quitting, 1994–2008

The trends in the prevalence of smoking, quitting and initiation among Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander men and women aged 18 years and over are described.

  • 2012
It is concluded that smoking is associated with functionally significant genome wide changes in DNA methylation in both lymphoblasts and pulmonary macrophages and that further integrated investigations of these epigenetic effects of smoking on carcinogenesis and other related co‐morbidities are indicated.
Cardiovascular profile and events of US adults 20–49 years with HIV: Results from the NHANES 1999–2008
Prevalence estimates of vascular risk factors in the adult US population with HIV compared to uninfected controls from the 1999 to 2008 National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey show associations with HIV infection with hypertension, diabetes, and diabetes, which underscore the need to further investigate the role of cardiovascular risk Factors in the growing HIV population.
Menominee perspectives on commercial and sacred tobacco use.
The findings indicated mainstream models of addiction did not capture the Menominee Indian Tribe of Wisconsin's context well; the Indigenist Stress-Coping Model was most applicable.
Lung cancer histology, stage, treatment, and survival in American Indians and Alaska Natives and whites
Studies of lung cancer disparities between American Indians and Alaska Natives (AIANs) and whites have yielded mixed results. To the authors' knowledge, no studies to date have investigated whether


Effect of proxy-reported smoking status on population estimates of smoking prevalence.
The use of proxy respondents in surveys designed to provide population estimates of smoking prevalence offers an inexpensive way to obtain these data. The accuracy of this information is examined in
Estimates of population smoking prevalence: self-vs proxy reports of smoking status.
Smoking status questions can be added to ongoing surveys such as the census or labor force surveys; one adult could provide smoking status for all household members.
The relationship of smoking cessation to sociodemographic characteristics, smoking intensity, and tobacco control policies.

  • 2005
Evidence that cessation behaviors were related to higher cigarette prices and the presence of state-level media/comprehensive campaigns is found, but less clear evidence exists for an association with bans restricting workplace smoking.
Cigarette smoking and quitting behaviors among unemployed adults in the United States.
Smoking rates were high among the unemployed, and quitting behaviors varied by sociodemographic factors and length of unemployment.
Workplace and home smoking restrictions and racial/ethnic variation in the prevalence and intensity of current cigarette smoking among women by poverty status, TUS-CPS 1998–1999 and 2001–2002
Home smoking policies were more consistently associated with a lower prevalence of current smoking irrespective of poverty status or race/ethnicity than workplace policies, underscore the importance of examining tobacco control policies in multiple domains (work and home) as well as by race/ Ethnicity and socioeconomic position.
Factors associated with discrepancies between self-reports on cigarette smoking and measured serum cotinine levels among persons aged 17 years or older: Third National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey, 1988-1994.
Evidence is provided that self-reported smoking status among adult respondents to a population-based survey conducted in a private medical setting is accurate and differences in smoking patterns, including the extent of nicotine dosing, may explain most of the discrepancy observed among self- reported smokers.
Using the Peters–Belson method to measure health care disparities from complex survey data
The Peters–Belson (PB) method is extended for multiple logistic and linear regressions of simple random samples to weighted data from complex designed survey samples and it is shown how to apply the Taylor linearization method and delete‐one‐group jackknife methods to obtain estimates of standard errors for the estimated disparity.
Identifying health disparities across the tobacco continuum.
Results indicate that differences in risk indicators along the tobacco disease continuum do not explain fully tobacco-related cancer consequences among some minority racial/ethnic groups, particularly among the aggregate groups, blacks/African Americans and American Indians/Alaska Natives.
