How will this data or analysis request assist with your work?

This data request will enable me to complete one of the objectives of my thesis, which is centred on the use of particular questions from this survey.

How does your request support the vision, mission, and values of SAYCW?

This request support the vision, mission and values of SAYCW as it enables the information to be used to better understand youth behavior to inform possible policies and practices geared towards improving youth health and well-being as well as health promotion among this population.

Provide a statement of the problem and the specific research questions that you will address. If you feel that the topic boxes on the following page of this online form are too vague, please identify the specific survey questions you want data from.

My research objective is to examine e-cigarette questions and their responses in the second wave of the survey. The specific questions i am interested in are;
a) 1-10

c) 71-73
