Collection and usage attributes

Guide for use:

Data should be collected after the birth.
 ‘After 20 weeks’ is defined as greater than or equal to 20 completed weeks’ gestation (>=20 weeks + 0 days).
 ‘Usually’ is defined as ‘according to established, or frequent usage; commonly, ordinarily; as a rule’. If  a woman reports having quit smoking at some point between 20 weeks of pregnancy and the birth, the value recorded should be the number of cigarettes usually smoked daily prior to quitting.

 

Collection methods:

Recommended question: 'How many tobacco cigarettes did the woman usually smoke each day after 20 weeks of pregnancy?', where after 20 weeks of pregnancy is defined as greater than or equal to 20 weeks + 0 days.

If a woman did not smoke tobacco cigarettes at any time after 20 weeks of pregnancy, a value of 000 should be recorded.

Occasional smoking
Women who report that they usually smoked less than one tobacco cigarette per day should have a value recorded of 998.
