Monitoring tobacco use among adults, adolescents, and pregnant women
This bulletin describes the main data collection methods related to tobacco use in the Netherlands in detail: the Health Survey, the Health Behaviour in School-aged Children survey, the Dutch National School Survey on Substance Use, and the Dutch Monitor on Substance Use and Pregnancy. These surveys are used to collect data about smoking by adults, adolescents, and pregnant women.
In this bulletin, we also present these key statistics on smoking among adults, adolescents, and pregnant women in the Netherlands. Those are vital statistics for monitoring the goals set in the National Prevention Agreement. These statistics in this bulletin were calculated in collaboration with Statistics Netherlands (CBS) and the National Institute for Public Health and the Environment (RIVM). Please contact Jeroen Bommelé if you have any questions regarding this bulletin.
