    Article - En anglais

    Fulltext.

    Objectives

    Trends in smokeless tobacco use were examined for men in Indiana, Iowa, Montana, and West Virginia from 1988 through 1993.

    Methods

    State survey data from the Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (BRFSS) were analyzed.

    Results

    Demographic characteristics associated with smokeless tobacco use included age less than 35 years, a high school education or less, and rural residence.

    Overall, there was little change in smokeless tobacco use among men in these states (range=-0.4-0.4 percentage points annually) ; only West Virginia had a significant decline.

    Conclusions

    Reasons for the overall lack of decline may include increased advertising and promotional expenditures or substitution of smokeless tobacco for cigarettes.

    Increased prevention and cessation efforts are needed.
