NYATS is an ongoing, quarterly, random-digit-dialed telephone survey of approximately 2,000 state residents aged [greater than or equal to] 18 years designed to generate state and regional estimates of tobacco-use behaviors and related attitudes and beliefs among adults living in residential households.
To assess levels of indoor smoking in restaurants, bars, and workplaces, all NYATS participants were asked three questions: "The last time you went to a restaurant in your community in the past 30 days, did you see someone smoking indoors?
All nonsmokers who participated in NYATS during June 26, 2003-June 30, 2004, and who lived outside New York City and Nassau County were eligible to participate in a saliva cotinine study and were invited to submit a saliva sample through the mail for cotinine analysis.
Response rates for NYATS, calculated according to the Council of American Survey Research Organizations formula, averaged 22% (range: 21%-24%) for the quarterly surveys conducted during June 26, 2003-June 30, 2004.
The percentages of NYATS respondents reporting exposure to SHS in restaurants and bars decreased significantly after the law took effect, from 19.8% (during June 26-July 23, 2003) to 3.1% (during April 1-June 30, 2004) among restaurant patrons and from 52.4% to 13.4% among bar patrons over the same period (Table 2).
Of the 6,152 NYATS participants who were eligible to submit saliva samples, 3,053 agreed, and 2,008 (33%) submitted samples.
