Project Summary:

This project is the Delaware public school administration of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Youth Tobacco Survey of middle and high school students. This survey has been administered every other year in even numbered years to a random and representative sample of both middle and high school students in most states. The study reports data comparable to other Center studies on tobacco use and abuse, but it also provides the only statewide youth data on attitudes toward tobacco, tobacco marketing, and access to tobacco by youth.
