Socioeconomic Differences in Smoking Behaviour among Adolescents: The Role of Academic Orientation.
Hagquist, Curt
Childhood: A Global Journal of Child Research, v7 n4 p467-78 Nov 2000
Explores the issue of socioeconomic differences in Swedish 9th graders' smoking behavior, using academic orientation as an indicator of social position. Finds that students who have applied for non-theoretical programs in high school are more likely to smoke than those who have applied to theoretical programs. Findings pose implications for anti-smoking and health education programs. (JPB)
