2005 and 2006 (Previous release)

The file combining microdata from the 2005 and 2006 Canadian Tobacco Use Monitoring Survey (CTUMS) is now available. This file provides a larger dataset for researchers to examine sub-groups of the population. The data have been re-weighted to reflect this two-year period. Users should note that variables not common to both years were dropped from the combined file.

Note: The CTUMS, conducted since 1999 by Statistics Canada on behalf of Health Canada, provides timely, reliable and continuous data on tobacco use and related issues. Its objective is to track changes in smoking status and amount smoked, especially among young people aged 15 to 24, who are most at risk for taking up smoking. This file contains the data for a two-year period collected between February 2005 and December 2006 inclusively.

Definitions, data sources and methods: survey number 4440.

Combined 2005 and 2006 data are now available in the Canadian Tobacco Use Monitoring Survey Microdata File, February 2005 to December 2006 (82M0020XCB, $2,140). See How to order products.
