Comparison of Smoking Habits of Blacks and Whites in a Case-Control Study.
Kabat, Geoffrey C.; And Others
American Journal of Public Health, v81 n11 p1483-86 Nov 1991
Subjects were interviewed to determine smoking habits of 9,252 current cigarette smokers (11 percent black) and 7,555 former smokers (6 percent black). More blacks than whites smoked. Blacks were three times more likely to be light smokers than heavy smokers. Effective prevention may require better understanding of cultural factors affecting smoking. (SLD)
