International assessment of tobacco use has been strengthened by advent of new survey initiatives.



Historically, assessing tobacco use has been weakened by the lack of data in most countries, particularly those in developing regions. However, with the development and implementation of the global youth tobacco survey (GYTS), global school personnel survey (GSPS) and the global health professionals survey (GHPS), the data gap is narrowing. The Global Adult Tobacco Survey (GATS), launched in February 2007, is designed to produce national and sub-national estimates on tobacco use and related measures. These systems can help monitor the global tobacco epidemic and advance research to promote effective tobacco control programs.
