ATUS Information Letter



Dear Arkansas Tobacco User Survey Participant:

Recently we called you from the Survey Research Center at the University of Arkansas at Little Rock to participate in a survey for the Arkansas Department of Health. The goal of this study is gain a better understanding of Arkansas tobacco users’ practices and beliefs regarding tobacco.

You have been randomly selected from tobacco users in your home to be included in the study. The Arkansas Department of Health values your input and upon completing the survey, we will send you a $25 gift card.

All information you give will not be connected to you in any way and will remain confidential. You will not have to answer any question you don’t want to. Your answers will not be linked to you in any report and all results will be presented at the group-level.

Hopefully when we call you again, you will allow us to schedule a good day and time for us to conduct the interview. We look forward to speaking with you again.

Thank you for your time. Should you have any questions or concerns, please contact me at the phone number or email address below.


Cindy Bennett
