||Tobacco smoking by occupation in Australia and the United States: A review of national surveys conducted between 1970 and 2005
||Jan. 2008, Vol.46, No.1, p.77-89. 92 ref.
||This article reviews national smoking surveys conducted in Australia and the United States between 1970 and 2005, with emphasis on the impact of occupational tobacco control. When the first research was published over 35 years ago, tobacco smoking was a regular feature in the general population of both countries, albeit with higher rates often documented among blue collar workers. Recent national investigations indicate that certain historical differences in smoking prevalence rates by occupation are persisting. Detailed examination also indicates that employee sub-groups such as cleaners and construction workers are now bearing much of the occupational smoking burden in Australia and the United States. Implications of these findings are discussed.
