The Global Adult Tobacco Survey (GATS) is the global standard to systematically monitor adult tobacco use and track key tobacco control indicators. GATS is a nationally representative household survey of adults 15 years of age or older, using a standard protocol. It is intended to generate comparable data within and across countries. GATS enhances countries' capacity to design, implement and evaluate tobacco control interventions.

Topics covered in GATS include tobacco use prevalence (smoking and smokeless tobacco products), second-hand tobacco smoke exposure and policies, cessation, knowledge, attitudes and perceptions, exposure to media and economics.
