At the request of state quitlines, the CDC has proposed wording for a new intake
question that will help quitlines track the number of tobacco users who contact
quitlines as a result of the National Tobacco Education Campaign. The question
is not part of the MDS. CDC will be asking US quitlines to report on responses
to this question both in aggregate as part of their quarterly Services Survey as
well as individual-level data for the national quitline data warehouse. The
question wording is: In the past three months, did you hear about
1-800-QUIT-NOW from any advertisements with smokers telling personal stories and
tips about living with health problems? 1. Yes; 2. No; 3.
