The Social Climate Survey of Tobacco Control was developed through the AAP Richmond Center's Data and Datasets project as a methodology to objectively measure the fundamental position of tobacco control in society and thereby provide a data collection system to monitor program impacts. The survey covers items such as policy changes, changes in social norms, reduction of exposure to environmental tobacco smoke and a rejection of pro-tobacco influences.
The Social Climate Survey of Tobacco Control was administered annually to a national sample from 2000-2015; at present, the Survey is still active in surveying tobacco use and policies at the state-level in Mississippi. Survey results, dissemination efforts and related analysis are maintained on the survey website.
