Tobacco Product Compliance Check Violations Involving Minors

This layer displays information obtained from analysis of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) Compliance Check Inspections of Tobacco Product Retailers database. This database contains address-level records for each retailer inspection – including decision date, violation type, and tobacco product type – dating back to 2011. These address-level records are geocoded and aggregated to the county level for multi-year periods* based on the inspection result decision date. Percentages are calculated by dividing the number of inspections with violations (any or minor-related) by the total number inspections in a given area and reporting period.

Note: Multi-year periods are used to enable stable comparisons over time, as some counties have no inspections during a single reporting year.
