A Simulation of the Effects of Youth Initiation Policies on Overall Cigarette Use.
Levy, David T.; Cummings, K. Michael; Hyland, Andrew
American Journal of Public Health, v90 n8 p1311-14 Aug 2000
Developed a simulation model to predict the effects of policies for reducing adolescent smoking initiation. The model projected numbers of smokers, never smokers, and ex-smokers by age, sex, and race/ethnicity and effects of reductions in youth initiation. Results predicted that even if tobacco policies eliminated youth initiation, the number of smokers would not be halved for over 30 years. (SM)
