Proposed Project

2005 Hispanic/Latino Adult Tobacco Survey (ATS)—New—National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion (NCCDPHP), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

Background and Brief Description

The purpose of this project is to conduct a culturally appropriate Adult Tobacco Survey questionnaire with Hispanic/Latino persons. The survey results will expand data and existing knowledge of tobacco use among Hispanics/Latinos in order to benefit tobacco use surveillance and prevention programming at the local, state, and regional levels. The questions will help to narrow existing gaps in knowledge concerning tobacco use in the Hispanic/Latino population and inform development of Hispanic/Latino-specific interventions.

The Hispanic/Latino population is fast growing in the United States. It is expected that the number of Hispanic/Latino persons residing in the U.S. will increase from 35.3 million in the year 2000 to 98.2 million in the year 2050, almost 3 times the current population. The large expected growth in the Hispanic/Latino population, especially in states that are not traditionally Hispanic/Latino, will have important implications for tobacco control activities in the years to come.

CDC is proposing a project that includes administering the Adult Tobacco Survey in three locations that have high concentrations of Hispanic/Latino persons, each location with a distinct Hispanic/Latino subpopulation. The locations are New York City (New York), Miami (Florida), and El Paso (Texas). Within each location, the survey will be conducted with approximately 1,500 participants, for a total of 4,500 participants. The survey will be conducted in both English and Spanish. There is no cost to respondents except for their time.
