Availability of Wave 2 Questionnaire Data Restricted Use File

The National Institutes of Health (NIH) and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) announce the availability of questionnaire data from the second wave of the Population Assessment of Tobacco and Health (PATH) Study. Qualified researchers may now apply for access to the restricted-use file (RUF) from the Inter-university Consortium for Political and Social Research (ICPSR).

The PATH Study is a household-based, nationally representative, longitudinal cohort study of 45,971 youth (12-17 years) and adults in the United States. The study was launched in 2011 to inform FDA’s regulatory activities under the Family Smoking Prevention and Tobacco Control Act that was signed into law in 2009. Data in the second wave were collected from October 2014 to October 2015.

Researchers may apply for access to Wave 2 RUF not government site.
