Journal of School Health, v58 n1 p401-05 Dec 1988
Eighth-graders' (N=1,513) responses to a smoking questionnaire and a self-esteem scale revealed that 15 percent currently smoked, with another 17 percent intending to smoke. Self-esteem and parental smoking behavior significantly influenced students' smoking behavior, as did family involvement in the tobacco industry. (Author/CB)
