In order to gauge attitudes and support in California for various tobacco policy solutions, the Center conducts polling to help frame the discussion and policy options. Some polls have been conducted statewide, focused on specific constituencies, while other polls have focused on a specific geographic area or community where there is activity and interest on a specific tobacco control topic. Seven of the surveys have featured questions on smokefree housing and the Center has created a summary document - Comparison of California Public Opinion Surveys About Smokefree Multi-Unit Housing - that analyzes and compares the results of these surveys.
Links to more information about each survey is below. Each survey page includesthe summary of key findings, the poll results, a memo with analysis of the report, as well as any additional materials produced in conjunction with the poll, such as a news release.
