Kaufman A, Augustson E, Davisc K, Finney Rutten LJ. Journal of Health Communication, 15: S3, 264 — 278. URL: http://dx.doi.org/10.1080/10810730.2010.526172  

This study analyzed data from the 2007 Health Information National Trends Survey to identify factors associated with awareness and use of telephone quitlines for smoking cessation. Results indicated that 50% of respondents (65% of current smokers) were aware of quitlines, but that only 3.5% of respondents (9% of current smokers) had called a quitline. Factors related to quitline awareness included age, ethnicity, education, looking for health information, and having more trust in the government. Current smoking status was strongly associated with quitline use. The article discusses implications and future research directions.
