Supplemental Series 1 – No Cost Supplemental Modules


Tobacco Module

This module provides a more comprehensive picture of tobacco use and attitudes, and – while this module is no longer required for TUPE grant recipients – it enhances the survey’s value for the California state Tobacco Use Prevention Education (TUPE) program.

This module assesses a wider range of tobacco-related behaviors and attitudes in greater depth, and provides program-related data, including peer norms, approval, and behavioral intentions.
