 In cases where data were missing from one or more waves, classification was based on the smoking status at the majority of data collections. Thus, if at three of four data collections the cohort member reported being a smoker, then they were classified as ‘predominantly smoker’.<​html><​br></​html>​ <​html><​br></​html>​ In cases where data were missing from one or more waves, classification was based on the smoking status at the majority of data collections.

 +=== Obtaining the standard smoking variables ===
 +
 +You can obtain a list of the standard topic variables to use in an NSHD data sharing request by selecting the link at the end of this page.
 +The XML version of the link can be sent to the LHA as part of a data sharing request.
 +Simply use your browser'​s //Save As// facility to save the list of variables to a file on your computer.
 +You can then [[mrclha.swiftinfo@ucl.ac.uk|email]] the XML version to us in support of your application,​ or when you fill in the [[nshd:​forms|data access application form]] and it asks which variables you need, mention the '​smoking standard basket'​ along with any others.
 +\\ \\ 
 +**Please Note** that if you are interested in smoking status at various years, the generally-used variables are the **'​c'​** ones, e.g. cigsta82**c**,​ cigsta09**c** - however these may not be the best variables for your project, be sure to investigate the smoking variables further on [[skylark:​skylark|Skylark]] before using them.
