Title Occasional smoking in a Minnesota working population
Bibliographic information Sep. 1996, Vol.86, No.9, p.1260-1266. 15 ref.
Abstract In a population of working adults the prevalence of occasional smoking was examined together with long-term smoking patterns of occasional smokers. Occasional smokers constituted 18.3% of all smokers in the baseline sample and 21.5% of all smokers in the cross-sectional sample surveyed 2 years later. Job monotony or repetitiveness were related to an increase in daily smoking at follow-up, while a change to more restrictive workplace smoking policies was associated with quitting. The results also confirm that a substantial proportion of smokers are low-rate users.
