The Center for Tobacco Policy Research at the Saint Louis University Prevention Research Center is conducting a three-year project examining the current status of 12-15 state tobacco control programs. The project aims to: 1) develop a comprehensive picture of a state’s tobacco control program to be used as a resource for tobacco control agencies and policymakers; 2) examine the effects of political, organizational, and financial factors on state tobacco control programs; and 3) learn how the states are using the CDC’s Best Practices for Comprehensive Tobacco Control Programs. This Profile has been developed as a resource for tobacco control partners and policymakers to use in their planning and advocacy efforts. The Indiana Profile presents both quantitative and qualitative results collected over a two-month period, beginning in July 2002.
