About the Study:
The Point of Sale Intervention for Tobacco Evaluation or POSITEv is a research study sponsored by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. The study is designed to collect information from about 4,200 adults across the country about ads they have seen and their attitudes towards smoking and the programs that help smokers who want to quit. Study participants were initially screened and interviewed in-person between July and December of 2018. Previous participants will be contacted by mail and asked to complete a follow-up questionnaire online. Field interviewers will follow-up with those who do not respond to the web survey to complete the questionnaire in-person on a laptop computer. We are currently hiring interviewers for the second wave of data collection, which will take place from April through mid-June 2019. Additional waves of data collection in late 2018, 2019 and 2020 may provide additional employment opportunities.
