Victorian adult smoking population surveys

This study involves the conduct of a population telephone survey of Victorian adults in November each year. The survey monitors selected smoking-related attitudes and behaviours over time, and quantifies aspects of smokers’ reported experiences, attitudes and opinions to assist the development of Quit’s program and policy initiatives. Most output comprises internal reports for the program and some findings of particular note are reported in journal articles. The survey originally commenced in 1985 using a door-to-door interview with a household sample frame.
