American Journal of Health Behavior, v22 n2 p101-07 Mar-Apr 1998
Using a self-report questionnaire, this study investigated smoking experimentation among 374 rural, black fifth graders and white fifth graders. Results indicated that 26% of males and 16% of females had tried cigarettes. Black students and white students had similar smoking experimentation rates. Peer and parent smoking affected students smoking behavior, as did alcohol use. (SM)
