The research is being conducted to understand behaviours, attitudes and knowledge about smoking. To do this, we need to understand more about the use of tobacco among smokers and recent quitters living in NSW and the ACT, their experiences of quitting, their knowledge of health issues related to smoking, and other issues related to tobacco smoking.




Aims + Outcomes

The information collected in this study will be used by the Institute to develop programs to reduce the incidence, and negative impact of smoking among people in New South Wales and the Australian Captial Territory.


The Cancer Institute NSW has contracted The Social Research Centre to conduct the telephone interviews required for this survey. You may have received a phone call from 0290608403 or 0290608404 regarding this study.
