MATS: Minnesota Adult Tobacco Survey
The Minnesota Adult Tobacco Survey (MATS) is a collaborative effort between ClearWay MinnesotaSM and the Minnesota Department of Health. MATS is the most thorough source of information about tobacco behaviors, attitudes and beliefs in Minnesota and helps measure the progress of Minnesota’s comprehensive tobacco control program. Data for this MATS were collected in 2018. Previous MATS were conducted in 1999, 2003, 2007, 2010 and 2014.
MATS Survey Methods: The 2018 MATS is a cross-sectional, random digit-dial telephone survey, conducted from February through July 2018 among adults aged 18 and older living in Minnesota.
