Abstract: In this follow-up to TEENAGE ATTITUDES AND PRACTICES SURVEY, 1989: [UNITED STATES] (ICPSR 9786), a component of the National Health Interview Survey, teenagers were interviewed to obtain specific information on every aspect of tobacco use, including measures of prevalence, knowledge and attitudes, and predictors of taking up smoking. In addition to questions about tobacco use, Teenage Attitudes and Practices Survey II (TAPS II) queried respondents about their attitudes regarding seatbelts, fitness, alcohol, marijuana, drugs in general, school, and diet. They were also asked whether, during the last year, they had been in an accident or physical fight, had been in a car with a drunk driver, or had ridden on a motorcycle. Finally, the respondents were asked about their physical condition and emotional state. Demographic and socioeconomic information provided in the data file includes respondents' race, education, geographic region, occupation, and marital status, as well as presence of parent(s) or other adult relatives in the household, family income, and education of the adults.
