* Any cessation activity includes a) current everyday smokers having one or more (24-hour or longer) quit attempts in past year, b) current some-day smokers who had previously smoked daily about 12 months ago and c) former smokers who completely quit within the past 12 months. (For more information on this definition of quitting behavior, see Shopland, Burns, Amacher, and Ruppert, 2000, Chapter 2).

The second and third columns, labeled "Had quit smoking for 3+/6+ months," refer to former smokers at the time of the interview who had completely quit smoking cigarettes 3+/6+ months ago, but had been daily smokers about a year ago.

† In the 2006-07 CPS, multiple races were allowed. Here "White" equals non-Hispanic, only White race reported; "Black" equals non-Hispanic, only Black race reported; "American Indian/Alaska Native" equals non-Hispanic, only American Indian/Alaska Native race reported; "Asian/Pacific Islander" equals non-Hispanic, only Asian/Native Hawaiian & Other Pacific Islander race reported; "2 or more races reported" equals non-Hispanic, 2 or more races reported. Note more than half of this last category is composed of non-Hispanic American Indian/Alaska Natives also reporting one or more other races. Also, Asian/Native Hawaiian & Other Pacific Islanders reporting some other race(s) make up the next largest subcategory within this grouping (mainly the Native Hawaiian & Other Pacific Islanders).
