From 2004-2023, the Social Science Research Center at Mississippi State University administered an annual cross-sectional web-based survey to a representative sample of university students at Mississippi State University, the University of Southern Mississippi, the University of Mississippi, and various junior colleges around the state. Note: The University Student Survey was not administered at the University of Southern Mississippi in 2013.
Data from these surveys provide information on many key tobacco-related indicators, allowing Mississippi universities to measure progress toward state and national goals and objectives.
All respondents were 18 years of age or older and university students during the spring term. Due to COVID-19, the 2020 administration was split into the spring and fall terms.
