    Article - En anglais

    Study objective--To identify factors associated with smoking behaviour in primary school children in Hong Kong.

    Design-A cross sectional survey in which both children and parents completed questionnaires.

    The main outcome measure was the smoking status of the children ; and risk factors (knowledge of and attitude to smoking and demographic and socioeconomic background) were identified as predictors of ever/never smoking.

    Setting and subjects-Altogether 9598 primary school children, aged 8-13 years, and attending 27 schools from two districts in Hong Kong participated.

    Main results-The prevalence of eversmoking was 12% (1119) - 15% (760) in boys and 7% (359) in girls.

    Children who were eversmokers had both seen and approved of their friends'smoking (8.79 ; 5.33,14.50), had a more positive attitude towards smoking (3.35 ; 2.21,5.09), and were more successful in recognising cigarette brand names and logos (1.67 ; 1.42,1.96), but they lacked confidence (1.78 ; 1.32,2.39).
