TSMKAMTIME reports the amount of time in minutes a daily or a non-daily smoker has his/her first cigarette after waking in the morning. This variable is created from two components: the first is a number variable and the second is a unit variable. Respondents reported how long, in minutes or hours, they wait after waking to smoke their first cigarette. For respondents who do not give a valid time response, the third question asks whether or not the person smokes his/her first cigarette within 30 minutes of waking. These responses are captured by TAMSMK.
Users should note that there are responses in the original data that appear illogical. For instance, most samples have a small number of responses where persons report waiting more than 24 hours after waking in the morning before he or she smokes the first cigarette. IPUMS provides these responses as they are found in the original data, except they are converted from hours to minutes.
This variable is a part of the Tobacco Use Supplement.
