‘Tobacco Questions for Surveys (TQS)’ and ‘Tobacco Questions for Surveys of Youth (TQS-Youth)’ Integration Project

Tobacco Questions for Surveys (TQS) was developed with a view to incorporating the globally standardized tobacco questions into the on-going national and international surveys. The subset of key questions from the Global Adult Tobacco Survey (GATS) is meant to improve comparability of tobacco data over time by harmonizing tobacco surveillance activities across various on-going surveys. TQS is a component of the Global Tobacco Surveillance System (GTSS), which was developed by the World Health Organization (WHO), the U.S. Centre for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and other partners to assist countries in establishing tobacco control surveillance and monitoring programs.
