In India, the ITC Project is called the TCP (Tobacco Control Policy) India Survey. The TCP India Survey is expected to have 3 waves in four states of India (Maharashtra, West Bengal, Bihar, and Madhya Pradesh). In each state, we survey the principal or capital city, along with surrounding rural villages. The sample size per state will be 2000 tobacco users (smoked and smokeless tobacco), and 600 non-users of tobacco, for a total of approximately 10,400 respondents.
