    Article - En anglais



    In the face of rising costs of surveillance systems, it is time to reexamine the feasibility of including proxy respondents in surveys designed to provide popultion estimates of smoking prevalence.


    Data are from the California Tobacco Surveys, which are random-digit dialed telephone surveys.

    One adult provided demographic information and smoking status for all household residents.

    Additionally, some adults were selected for in-depth interviews that also included smoking status questions.
