X indicates a question is in all cohorts unless otherwise specified; limited questions note eligible cohorts in
brackets. For example, QA3 (use of nicotine gum) was on all the follow-up questionnaires. In comparison, QA43
(use of nicotine lozenge) was added in Wave 6 of the survey, and thus asked of Cohorts 5 and 6 at F1, Cohorts
4 to 6 at F2, and Cohorts 3 to 6 at F3; QA43 is in all versions of the MDS (F4, F5, F6).


NOTES:
This provides a general database for the OTS follow-up interview questions. Please refer to Appendix A
questionnaires for question edits or revisions at each wave. There is also supporting documentation regarding
baseline and follow-up question edits throughout the data collection periods (please refer to our website
http://www.otru.org/ots_doc.html for OTS Question Edits documentation for baseline and follow-up surveys).

The OTS Question Database for Baseline Surveys notes baseline survey questions. Questions with the same
variable name are the same or similar questions. In general, the baseline questions ask about LIFETIME
behaviours whereas the follow-up questions ask about behaviours in the past SIX MONTHS.

July 2007 (W5) -   New smokeless tobacco products       01 - Very likely
                   called SNUS are being introduced in
                   the United States and probably soon
                   in Canada. These products are small
                   pouches of tobacco that are placed
                   between the gum and teeth; they are
                   sucked and do not require spitting.
                   How likely do you think you would be
                   to use these products?

                   NOTE: “snus” is pronounced “snoose” 02 - Somewhat likely
                   – rhymes with moose/goose
