Appendix A: Smoking questions changes

In 2015, one smoking question was removed from the questionnaire:

  • 'Some tobacco is MUCH CHEAPER than the kind normally found in shops because it is fake, smuggled into the country to avoid tax, or brought back from holiday then sold on to others, sometimes these are called 'fake fags'. Of the cigarettes that you smoke, how much of it is what we have described as 'MUCH CHEAPER tobacco' or 'fake fags'?'

Two of the smoking questions were amended:

  • The instruction PLEASE RECORD A MAXIMUM OF 4 was removed from the question 'Please write in the space below the names of as many makes or brands of cigarettes that you have either seen or heard of.'
  • 'Which (if any) of the following people smoke?' was changed to 'How often do the following people smoke?'. In addition, the following changes were made:
    • The instruction was changed from
      PLEASE CROSS ONE BOX ON EACH LINE
      to
      PLEASE CROSS ONE BOX ON EACH LINE. IF YOU DON'T HAVE OR DON'T SEE A PERSON, CROSS THE BOX AT THE END OF THE LINE.
    • The order of response options was reversed from 2013 order of 'Smokes daily', 'Smokes occasionally', 'Does not smoke', 'Don' t know' and 'Don't have or don't see this person'
    • The response categories were altered to include the word Your before each option.

No new questions were added.
