About the ASH Year 10 Snapshot Survey
The ASH Year 10 Snapshot surveys 20,000-30,000 students every year on their smoking and vaping behaviour and attitudes – one of the largest youth smoking and vaping surveys in the world. It is a census style survey – all New Zealand public and private schools with Year 10 students are invited to participate. The answers given by students are confidential.
The Snapshot began in 1992 and has been running annually since 1999. (It was not able to be carried out in 2020 because of Covid-19.) The Snapshot is funded by the Ministry of Health as part of the New Zealand Youth Tobacco Monitor.
Using the ASH Year 10 Snapshot Survey
The Survey is a valuable research tool and as such it is used by researchers, policy-makers and those interested in the Smokefree 2025 goal.
ASH encourages researchers to use the Survey to better understand youth smoking and vaping.
