Elder, John P.; And Others
Adolescence, v23 n91 p689-702 Fall 1988
Investigated smoking and tobacco-chewing habits of sixth and seventh graders (n=433). Students reported own tobacco use, perceptions of use among peers and friends, parental socioeconomic status, and other variables. Results indicated one-third of respondents had used some form of tobacco at least once. Norm perceptions and best friend's habits predicted smoking and chewing experimentation. (Author/BH)
