New Zealand Youth Tobacco Monitor

Tobacco Research - New Zealand Youth Tobacco Monitor (NZYTM)

The New Zealand Youth Tobacco Monitor (NZYTM) is a national school-based monitor of Year 10 students, run by Action for Smokefree 2025 (ASH) and the Health Promotion Agency/Te Hiringa Hauora (HPA). The NZYTM forms part of the HPA’s public health monitoring programme, and gathers information on smoking and vaping related attitudes and behaviours among Year 10 students.

The 2020 NZYTM involves the ASH Year 10 Snapshot, an annual survey of around 30,000 Year 10 students throughout New Zealand.

Between 2006 and 2018, NZYTM also included HPA’s Youth Insights Survey (YIS). The YIS was carried out every two years, with one Year 10 class invited to participate from approximately 140 randomly selected schools. Results and methodology reports from the Youth Insights Survey are published here:
