Description

TDOCAD reports whether self-respondents had ever been advised by their doctor to stop smoking.

In 1992 and 1993, some unidentified respondents also answered this question. These individuals were expected to not be in the universe; however, they were included in the original data.

This variable is part of the Tobacco Use Supplement.
