South Carolina Youth Tobacco Survey

Unexplained Severe Pulmonary Disease Associated with E-cigarette Use

The Centers of Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is coordinating with several states to investigate multiple reports of vaping related lung injury.  Healthcare providers and clinicians should report any suspected cases of severe pulmonary disease associated with e-cigarette use to their local health department.

This survey provides data on tobacco use of both middle and high school students from across the state. It also includes data on school curriculum, knowledge and attitudes, mass media influences and exposure to secondhand smoke.
