Among 1,208 Puerto Rican women in Boston and Hartford responsible for adolescents, the age-adjusted prevalence of current smokers was 29.4%, higher than rates for all adult women. Nonsmoking status was associated with higher educational attainment, presence of a spouse or partner, and regular church attendance. (SV)
