Supplementary notes

** In 2008, Brazil completed one round of GATS and, in 2013, integrated GATS into its national health survey conducted among adults aged ≥18 years. Thus, Brazil’s data across time compares results for adults aged ≥18 years. Brazil’s 2013 national health survey did not assess the indicators on exposure to secondhand smoke and exposure to advertisements, promotions, or sponsorships in any location.

†† In the most recent round, Russia and Ukraine did not survey certain geographic areas that were surveyed in the baseline round.

§§ Turkey has completed three rounds of GATS (2008, 2012, and 2016). Data shown are from 2008 as the baseline and 2016 as the latest round.
