Recommendations from the Global Tobacco Control Branch, CDC:

Part I. Modification of Existing Tobacco Questions: Modification of the existing Man's Questionnaire questions on tobacco use to match with Tobacco Questions for Surveys (TQS) which is a subset of key survey questions from the Global Adult Tobacco Survey (GATS). Harmonizing the language used to ask about tobacco use will enhance comparability of findings from various surveys and better enable sound conclusions about trends and relationships between tobacco factors and other factors.

Part II. Inclusion of Additional Tobacco Questions: Part II of this proposal expands on the recommendation for alignment of tobacco questions. We are proposing the inclusion of the full set of 22 TQS questions in the Man's Questionnaire. Population-based surveys are encouraged to use all TQS questions to obtain a comprehensive tobacco control picture for their countries.

Please see attached proposal for full details.
