Global Tobacco Surveillance System Data Release

Sep 27, 2004

The CDC Office on Smoking and Health's Global Tobacco Control Program announces the first release of data collected under the Global Tobacco Surveillance System, a collaboration of WHO, CDC, and research coordinators from the participating countries. One part of this system, the Global Youth Tobacco Survey (GYTS), has been completed by over 1.3 million students from 133 countries. The survey collects information on tobacco use prevalence and consumption, media and advertising exposure, second hand smoke exposure, access and availability of tobacco products, cessation, and school curriculum involving tobacco use. The initial data release will include at least one country from each of the WHO regions, 12 countries total (Barbados, Costa Rica, Venezuela, Sri Lanka, South Africa, Zimbabwe, Poland, Russian Federation, Ukraine, Jordan, China, Fiji). Additional data, including repeated surveys in some countries, will be released by the GTSS in the near future. For more information, please see the attachment.
