Survey on Tobacco Consumption in Sounthestern Europe (STC-SEE) 2019
Adhering to the global standard protocol for systematically monitoring adult tobacco use and tracking key tobacco indicators, STC-SEE is a cross-sectional household survey with the aim of producing national-level estimates. The survey is a part of the project “Accelerating Progress on Effective Tobacco Tax Policies in Low- and Middle-Income Countries” funded by the University of Illinois at Chicago’s (UIC) Institute for Health Research and Policy. In addition to detailed information on tobacco consumption, cessation, expenditures, and prices, STC-SEE provides information on attitudes towards tobacco prices and consumption, access restrictions, anti-smoking sentiment, exposure to tobacco advertising, and sociodemographic characteristics of the respondents.
The STC-SEE Questionnaire was prepared by the Institute of Economic Sciences, Belgrade, Serbia, mostly based on the GATS Core Questionnaire with Optional Questions (version 2.0, Nov. 2010, and version 3.0, Jan. 2019). Several questions were adopted from two other questionnaires developed by research teams engaged on ITC and PPACTE surveys. The survey results were used to measure various indicators about tobacco use, tobacco cessation, secondhand smoke exposure, economics of tobacco use, media, and attitudes and perceptions. The questionnaire was developed in English and translated into national languages.
