  1. Fulltext. Intermittent smokers : A descriptive analysis of persons who have never smoked daily.

    Article - En anglais



    This study assessed the prevalence of and demographic variables associated with lifetime never-daily smoking in the United States.


    Descriptive demographic data and logistic regression analyses were used to examine associations with never-daily smoking.


    Lifetime never-daily smokers constituted a significant minority of non-White smokers.

    There was a strong association between never-daily smoking and college education among young adults, particularly men.

    Although never-daily smoking was associated with initiation behavior among young smokers, it also represented a persistent pattern for some smokers, particularly non-Whites and Hispanics.


    The demographic distribution of never-daily smoking may have implications for developing culturally appropriate smoking prevention and cessation strategies.
