A Study of the Health Practices of Minnesota Adults in 2018

This is a comprehensive survey about the health practices of adults in Minnesota, with an emphasis on tobacco use. Between February and June 2018, we will invite over 6,000 Minnesota residents to participate in this telephone survey. Each person who is interviewed will represent not only themselves but also other adults like them in Minnesota.

It is important that we talk with as many people as we can from those invited to participate so that we can accurately understand important health and tobacco-related issues. We hope that if you are selected for an interview you will choose to participate. The results of the survey will provide useful information to health care professionals, medical researchers and others interested in helping Minnesotans live healthier lives.

The survey is being conducted by Westat, an independent research organization, on behalf of the Minnesota Department of Health and ClearWay Minnesota. Any information you provide during the interview is held confidential. Your name will never be used in connection with any study results. The information you provide is released only in statistical, summary form. Your responses are added to the responses of others and published as combined information only. Personal identifying information will not be disclosed or released to anyone outside the research team for any purpose and will be protected.
