Abstract

The e-cigarette is defined as a battery-operated device which vaporizes a nicotine solution into a form of an inhalable aerosol. Vape is defined as a battery-operated device which vaporizes a no-nicotine solution into a form of an inhalable aerosol. NECS2016 was conducted mainly to measure the prevalence of e-cigarette and vape (ECV) users in Malaysia. This study also describes the characteristics of current, former and dual users. the questionnaire was developed together with experts on smoking from both the ministry of health and universities. 6,000 samples were planned to represent 22 million household adults at national and locality (urban/rural) levels. Six centers were selected as the coordinating zones for data collection. They are at USM Kubang Kerian, USM Penang, Uitm Sungai Buloh, UTM Skudai, UNIMAS, and USM. Pre-testing and training were done prior to data collection. 10,471 adults were visited but only 6,906 were eligible and of these, 4288 respondents were successfully interviewed, yielding the overall response rate of 63.4%. Data quality was assured at all levels. Data Collection was monitored using the NECS IT system developed in-house. This included the double data entry technique. Complex sampling analysis was performed using weight calculated from base or design weight and adjusted for response weight. The 4,288 respondents interviewed represent 19 million Malaysians. Majority of the respondents were 25-44 years (44%), had completed at least secondary level education (69%), were of Malay ethnicity (73%), were Muslim (79%), and married (68%). Males and females were equally represented.
