Objective : To examine the inclusion of program evaluation components in a national sample of youth tobacco cessation programs.

Methods : Program administrators were interviewed to ascertain program characteristics associated with the inclusion of program evaluation components.

Results : Two thirds of all surveyed programs (n=591) had an evaluation component; most included attendance, user satisfaction, and quitting measures. Programs with an evaluation component were significantly more likely to report annual funding greater than the median and to conduct a follow-up with participants.

Conclusion : Program characteristics and associated evaluation components are summarized, and recommendations are given for a minimal level of program evaluation planning.
