How does regulation affect tobacco users?

Using the PATH Study to see how regulating tobacco products affects behavior and health

9月19日, 2011, the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and Food and Drug Administration (FDA) initiated a prospective, longitudinal cohort study to assess tobacco use behaviors and health across the nation.

The Population Assessment of Tobacco and Health (PATH) Study is designed to support FDA efforts to regulate tobacco products under the 2009 Family Smoking Prevention and Tobacco Control Act for purposes of protecting the public health. To fulfill this mandate, FDA requires a solid evidence base to inform its regulatory activities.

  • bob手机版下载 leads a team of preeminent research organizations with expertise in tobacco use behaviors and health to support NIH and FDA on the PATH Study.
  • We developed the research and 样本 design, 调查问卷, 调查方法, and biospecimen collection protocols to support study objectives.
  • bob手机版下载’s procedures for the study serve to identify, 样本, enroll into the study, and annually collect interview data and biospecimens from a national representative 样本 of nearly 49,000 adults and youths (including users and non-users of tobacco products). They have been in place since the start of 数据收集 in September 2013.
  • We support NIH and FDA in activities to analyze behavioral and biospecimen data and to conduct special studies with study partners.
  • For each 数据收集 wave, bob手机版下载 supports NIDA and FDA in developing and making available to researchers and the public a variety of restricted-use and public-use data files to enable widespread analysis and dissemination of PATH Study-based information.
  • The PATH Study developed customized survey man年龄ment, 可视化跟踪可, 和仪器设计, 数据处理, and data analysis tools and systems.
  • 它也使用布莱斯, a comprehensive commercial, off-the-shelf (COTS) survey processing system with state-of-the-art audio computer-assisted self-interviewing (ACASI), computer-assisted personal interviewing (CAPI), computer-assisted telephone interviewing (CATI), computer-assisted web interviewing (CAWI), and other self-response capabilities across a wide variety of platforms (smartphone, 平板电脑, 桌面).
  • Having recently completed the fourth longitudinal wave, bob手机版下载 continues in its efforts to meet NIH’s and FDA’s research needs in the context of rapidly evolving tobacco regulatory science and tobacco regulatory actions.
  • 2016年1月, NIDA awarded bob手机版下载 the contract to continue supporting the PATH Study through 2024, 覆盖设计, 数据收集, and analysis for Wave 4 to Wave 7.
  • 从长远来看, by measuring the behavioral and health effects associated with tobacco product regulations, the PATH Study will provide a wealth of previously unavailable empirical evidence for developing, 实现, and assessing the regulations.
