Kahn, Esther B.
Journal of School Health, 40, 10, 561-562, Dec '70
This study reflects the findings of previous studies as reported in the literature. This paper establishes a signi6931nt 496f5r5nce between males and females as to reasons for smoking. Males start because their parents smoke or their siblings smoke. That which most effectively deters them is a concern for health. Females are more open to experimentation, less influenced by parental behavior, and most frequently deterred by social desirability. (Author)
