 +=== 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.
