Victorian adult smoking and vaping population surveys

This study involves the conduct of cross-sectional telephone surveys of population-representative samples of Victorians aged 18 years and older. The survey monitors smoking and vaping prevalence and behaviours over time and quantifies aspects of reported experiences, attitudes, and opinions to assist the development of Quit’s program and policy initiatives. Most outputs comprise reports for the program and some findings are reported in journal articles. The survey originally commenced in 1985 using a door-to-door interview with a household sample frame. In 1998, it transitioned to a telephone survey, with the proportion of mobile vs landline numbers gradually changing over the years to reflect changing phone ownership patterns. From 2018/2019, it transitioned from a yearly survey to a much larger survey conducted every four years.
