Brief Summary:
The main purpose of the research study is to estimate the prevalence of tobacco product use and describe the tobacco use patterns in adults in Germany.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment
Tobacco Use Other: Survey on Use of Tobacco Products in the General Population Other: Survey on Use of Tobacco Products in IQOS Users

Detailed Description:

The aim of the survey is to describe the current and past patterns of use of tobacco products in the general adult population of Germany and in adult IQOS users registered in the IQOS user database of Philip Morris GmbH (Germany IQOS User Database), and explore their association with key independent variables. More specifically, the objectives are:

  1. Estimate the prevalence of current tobacco use status in the study population.
  2. Describe the past tobacco use status (cigarette, IQOS and other innovative products, including e-cigarettes) in the study population (i.e. never-use, initiation, product use transition, cessation, re-initiation, and relapse).
  3. Explore the association between self-reported health status and use of tobacco products in the study population.
  4. Explore the association between patterns of use (including misuse) with motivation to use, perceived quality attributes of IQOS (e.g. risk and self-reported changes since switching to the product, in a number of relevant domains where IQOS may have potential benefits), and consumer's satisfaction in the population of IQOS users in Germany registered in the Germany IQOS User Database.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Prevalence of current tobacco use [ Time Frame: Study duration (3 years). ]
    Prevalence of current tobacco use status in the study population.

  2. Past tobacco use status [ Time Frame: Study duration (3 years). ]
    Past tobacco use status (cigarette, IQOS and other innovative products) in the study population.

  3. Self-reported health status [ Time Frame: Study duration (3 years). ]
    Association between self-reported health status and use of tobacco products in the study population.

  4. Perceived risk [ Time Frame: Study duration (3 years). ]
    Association between patterns of use with perceived risk.

  5. IQOS use experience [ Time Frame: Study duration (3 years). ]
    Describe the IQOS user experience, including motivation to use, mis-use, satisfaction, and self-reported changes since switching to the product (in a number of domains where IQOS may have potential benefits).
