The Ontario Tobacco Research Unit recently updated two tobacco database resources for the design and conduct of studies related to tobacco and tobacco control. The Directory of Public Use Data on Tobacco Use in Canada is designed to help researchers and students locate Canadian data sets on smoking and tobacco use by providing a comprehensive list of survey data sets available for public use. The Searchable Database of Questionnaire Items from Population Surveys of Tobacco Use in Canada provides researchers and program evaluators with reliable and valid survey questions.
