Description of the data source, numerator, denominator, survey questions, and other relevant details about the national estimate.
From the 2006-2007 Current Population Survey:
Which of these best describes the area in which you work MOST of the time?
DO NOT READ: WORK PLACE QUESTIONS PERTAIN TO THE SAMPLE PERSON'S MAIN JOB. IF EQUAL AMOUNT OF TIME SPENT "INDOORS" AND "OUTDOORS" AT WORK - REPORT ON POLICY WITH RESPECT TO "INDOOR" WORK
Do you mainly work in an office building, in your own home, in someone else's home, or in another indoor place?
Does your place of work have an official policy that restricts smoking in any way?
DO NOT READ: "PLACE OF WORK" RESTRICTIONS INCLUDE POLICIES OF THE EMPLOYER, BUILDING OWNER OR ANY GOVERNMENTAL LAWS-THUS "ANY POLICY" AT THE PLACE OF WORK REGARDLESS OF WHO IS RESPONSIBLE FOR IT.
Which of these best describes your place of work's smoking policy for INDOOR PUBLIC OR COMMON AREAS, such as lobbies, rest rooms, and lunch rooms?
Which of these best describes your place of work's smoking policy for WORK AREAS?
Persons are covered by indoor worksite policies that prohibit smoking if they answer that smoking is not allowed in ANY "public areas" or ANY " work areas".
The denominator for this measure only included persons who reported that they work in indoor public workplaces and does not include persons who work at home or at someone else's home. (Persons who answer that they work in an "office building" or " another indoor place" are included).
In addition, persons whose cigarette smoking status is missing are excluded from this measure. This is consistent with how measures from the data system are typically analyzed.
The Current Population Survey (CPS) collects family income information in categories that include a range of incomes. Family income levels are determined using poverty thresholds from the U.S. Census Bureau. For this measure CPS family income categories that fall completely below the poverty threshold are displayed as "Below", income categories that contain the poverty threshold are displayed as "Borderline", and income categories that fall completely above the poverty threshold are displayed as "Above".
