Framework index of the current tobacco advertising, promotion and sponsorship policy (TAPS) environment in the Federated States of Micronesia (FSM). Three research questions underpinned this study: What is the context surrounding the current TAPS policy in FSM? What circumstances led to the development of the current legislative text? And, What is the involvement of the different actors in developing and monitoring the TAPS legislation? A health policy triangle model was used as a conceptual approach on publicly available documents. The thematic framework approach informed the analysis of thirty nine documents. Four themes generated from the analysis: 1) the adoption of TAPS provisions due to international commitments, 2) the limited involvement of sub-national actors, 3) the problematic tobacco control program’s funding and administration and 4) the incomplete documentation of TAPS. This file provides the coded text used for the generated findings, stratified per theme, sub-theme and category. Links to original material are provided in the reference list.
