The Global Adult Tobacco Survey (GATS) is the global standard for systematic monitoring of adult tobacco use (smoked and smokeless) and for tracking key tobacco control indicators. Mexico first conducted GATS in 2009, followed by a second wave of GATS in 2015. Both surveys used a standardized methodology designed to produce internationally comparable data on tobacco use and tobacco control measures.Data from GATS helps to strengthen the capacity of countries to design, implement, and monitor tobacco control and prevention programs and policies. We will ensure that GATS Mexico 2015 remains a very useful tool to redouble our efforts in implementing effective public health policies to reduce and preventing tobacco use.
