Summary
The PATH Study was launched in 2011 to inform the Food and Drug Administration's regulatory activities under the <a href="https://www.fda.gov/tobacco-products/rules-regulations-and-guidance/family-smoking-prevention-and-tobacco-control-act-table-contents">Family Smoking Prevention and Tobacco Control Act (TCA)</a>. The PATH Study is a collaboration between the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA), National Institutes of Health (NIH), and the Center for Tobacco Products (CTP), Food and Drug Administration (FDA). The study sampled over 150,000 mailing addresses across the United States to create a national sample of tobacco users and non-users. 45,971 adults and youth constitute the first (baseline) wave, Wave 1, of data collected by this longitudinal cohort study. These 45,971 adults and youth along with 7,207 "shadow youth" (youth ages 9 to 11 sampled at Wave 1) make up the 53,178 participants that constitute the Wave 1 Cohort. Respondents are asked to complete an interview at each follow-up wave. Youth who turn 18 by the current wave of data collection are considered "aged-up adults" and are invited to complete the Adult Interview. Additionally, "shadow youth" are considered "aged-up youth" upon turning 12 years old, when they are asked to complete an interview after parental consent. At Wave 4, a probability sample of 14,098 adults, youth, and shadow youth ages 10 to 11 was selected from the civilian, noninstitutionalized population at the time of Wave 4. This sample was recruited from residential addresses not selected for Wave 1 in the same sampled PSUs and segments using similar within-household sampling procedures. This "replenishment sample" was combined for estimation and analysis purposes with Wave 4 adult and youth respondents from the Wave 1 Cohort who were in the civilian, noninstitutionalized population at the time of Wave 4. This combined set of Wave 4 participants, 52,731 participants in total, forms the Wave 4 Cohort. Please refer to the <a href="https://www.icpsr.umich.edu/files/NAHDAP/documentation/ug36231-all_REST.pdf">Restricted-Use Files User Guide</a> that provides further details about children designated as "shadow youth" and the formation of the Wave 1 and Wave 4 Cohorts. Dataset 0001 (DS0001) contains the data from the Public-Use Master Linkage File (PUF-MLF). This file contains 30 variables and 67,276 cases. The file provides a master list of every person's unique identification number and what type of respondent they were in each wave for data that are available in the Public-Use Files and Special Collection Public-Use Files. Dataset 0002 (DS0002) contains the data from the Restricted-Use Master Linkage File (RUF-MLF). This file contains 93 variables and 67,276 cases. The file provides a master list of every person's unique identification number and what type of respondent they were in each wave for data that are available in the restricted-Use Files, Special Collection Restricted-Use Files, and Biomarker Restricted-Use Files
