From the 2009 National Youth Tobacco Survey:
When you read newspapers or magazines, how often do you see ads or promotions for cigarettes and other tobacco products?
- I don't read newspapers or magazines
- All of the time
- Most of the time
- Some of the time
- Hardly ever
Students are considered to be exposed to tobacco advertisements and promotions if they answer 'all of the time', 'most of the time', or 'some of the time' to the question listed. In 2011, the answer categories 'always', 'most of the time', and 'sometimes' were considered to be exposed.
