The Global Adult Tobacco Survey (GATS) is a household survey that collects data on non-institutionalized men and women aged 15 years and older using a standardized methodology for constructing the sample frame, selecting households, and processing data.

The GATS is designed to produce national and sub-national estimates on tobacco use. The Egypt GATS provides information on tobacco use, cessation, second-hand smoke, economics, media, and knowledge, attitudes and perceptions towards tobacco.
