Ongoing and Completed Studies
Development of Smoking Estimates for South Carolina Using Weighted, Multilevel Prediction Models
Principal Investigator: Jan Marie Eberth
Funding Source: US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control
Study Period: 9/26/14–6/30/16
The goal of this project is to make model-based small area estimates of smoking prevalence, cessation, secondhand smoke and policy adoption among South Carolina adults and their respective home/workplace environments. Specifically, we plan to utilize data from the 2014 SC Adult Tobacco Survey, supplemented with county-level data from sources such as the American Community Survey, to predict the prevalence of smoking (and other relevant outcomes) among adults in each county in SC.
