Proposed Project: Reactions to Canadian-style Cigarette Warning Labels—NEW—The National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion (NCCDPHP), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), proposes to conduct a national survey of young persons to assess their attitudes towards larger and more graphic cigarette warning labels, such as those currently used in Canada. Although the Start Printed Page 14719purpose of cigarette warning labels is to alert consumers about the health hazards of smoking, research suggests that current U.S. warnings fail to get the attention of smokers, an important first step if warnings are to have any deterrent effect. Cigarette warning labels have not changed since 1984 in the United States.
The proposed study will be conducted through implementation of a web-based survey. We propose to administer a 10 minute survey to 2000 persons 18 to 24 years of age. The survey will include images of Canadian cigarette packs with their current warning labels and questions about reactions to these warnings, including acceptability, and perceived usefulness (perceived impact on starting to smoke or deciding to quit). The results of this study will be shared with policy makers and public health officials. The total burden for this data collection is 200 hours.
