Research – Surveillance, Research – Survey
PHI’s Survey Research Group collected important data documenting tobacco use from 1987 to present, helping to track and inform prevention efforts.
Their research found that only 11.9 percent of the state’s adults smoked in 2010, making California one of only two states to reach the federal Healthy People 2020 target of reducing the percentage of adults who smoke to 12 percent.
