PATH Study Data User Workshop, August 14-15, 2023

The Population Assessment of Tobacco and Health (PATH) Study is a household-based, nationally representative, longitudinal cohort study of approximately 46,000 adults and youth (ages 12-17) in the United States. The Study was launched in 2011 to inform the FDA's regulatory activities under the Family Smoking Prevention and Tobacco Control Act that was signed into law in 2009. Data collection began in 2013. 

This workshop will utilize hands-on examples to better understand the PATH Study sample design and weighting. Specifically, attendees will gain a better understanding of how to conduct longitudinal analyses to estimate change over time as well as pseudo-cross-sectional analyses to estimate prevalence.
