- Demographic Differences in Tobacco Use and Utilization of Cessation Resources Among Asian Oregonians (December, 2008) and Asian Oregonians' Attitudes Toward the Tobacco Quit Line (June, 2009)
The AFC and its API Health Network identified two gaps in current knowledge about tobacco use and cessation among APIs. 1) We do not have good estimates of tobacco use among various API ethnic subgroups. 2) We do not know why API Oregonians do not use Oregon's Tobacco Quit Line. In response to these gaps, the AFC worked with the TPEP at Oregon's Public Health Division (Department of Human Services [DHS]), Oregon's Tobacco Quit Line, and NPC Research to develop the current community-driven project. The goal was to collect information about tobacco use and utilization of cessation resources and services among Asian Oregonians, and to examine how demographics, perceptions of harm, cultural factors, and linguistic acculturation are related to tobacco use and cessation.
