Global Youth Tobacco Survey GYTS

$179 / year

The Global Youth Tobacco Survey (GYTS) is a school-based survey that collects data on students aged 13–15 years using a standardized methodology for constructing the sample frame, selecting schools and classes, and processing data. The GYTS surveillance system – the data source of this dataset, is intended to enhance the capacity of countries to design, implement, and evaluate tobacco control and prevention programs.

Complexity

The Global Youth Tobacco Survey (GYTS) uses a standard methodology for constructing the sampling frame, selecting schools and classes, preparing questionnaires, following consistent field procedures, and using consistent data management procedures for data processing and analysis. The information generated from the GYTS can be used to stimulate the development of tobacco control programmes and can serve as a means to assess progress in meeting programme goals. In addition, GYTS data can be used to monitor seven Articles in the World Health Organization (WHO) and Framework Convention on Tobacco Control (FCTC). Funding for the GYTS has been provided by the Canadian Public Health Association (CPHA), National Cancer Institute (NCI), United Nations International Children’s Emergency Fund (UNICEF), and the World Health Organization (WHO) Tobacco Free Initiative.

GYTS is composed of 56 “core” questions designed to gather data on the following seven domains. The questionnaire also allows countries to insert their own country-specific questions.

– Knowledge and attitudes of young people towards cigarette smoking
– Prevalence of cigarette smoking and other tobacco use among young people
– Role of the media and advertising in young people’s use of cigarettes
– Access to cigarettes
– Tobacco-related school curriculum
– Environmental tobacco smoke (ETS)
– Cessation of cigarette smoking
