Adult Use of Tobacco, 1975.
In 1964, 1966, and 1970, studies were conducted among the adult (21 and over) population of the United States in order to determine attitudes, knowledge, and behavior related to the use of tobacco--especially cigarette smoking. With a lapse of five years since the last national study, it was necessary to determine what changes in behavior and attitudes had taken place since 1970; therefore, this 1975 study was undertaken. The purpose of this survey was twofold: to evaluate possible changes in knowledge, attitudes, beliefs, and behavior concerning smoking that have taken place since 1970; and to provide in-depth information to all who have continuing and concerted interest in the problem, so that all smoking programs can be maximally effective. The majority of the interviews were conducted by telephone where available; the remainder in face-to-face interviews. The data are based on approximately 12,000 interviews of adults, 21 and over, all of which were conducted by Chilton Research Services of Philadelphia. The findings are organized with respect to demographic data, attitudes, perception of environment, smoking history, dosage, other forms of tobacco, and changes in smoking behavior. (Author)
