Although this question only asks about the use of cigarettes, the Biobehavioral Working Group feels that these questions can be asked about other tobacco products including e-cigarettes, hookah, and snuff. Specify each product you are looking for (e.g., cigarettes, cigars [large cigars, cigarillos, and little filtered cigars], pipes, hookah, e-cigarettes, smokeless tobacco, dissolvables, bidis, and kreteks).

Selection Rationale

These items are from the Population Assessment of Tobacco and Health (PATH) Wave 2 survey and are validated measures of youth flavor e-cigarette preferences.
