  1. Fulltext. Teenage smoking, attempts to quit, and school performance.

    Article - En anglais



    This study examined the relationship between school performance, smoking, and quitting attempts among teenagers.


    A logistic regression model was used to predict the probability of being a current smoker or a former smoker.

    Date were derived from the 1990 California Youth Tobacco Survey.


    Students'school performance was a key factor in predicting smoking and quitting attempts when other sociodemograhic and family income factors were controlled.


    Developing academic or remedial classes designed to improve students'school performance may lead to a reduction in smoking rates among teenagers while simultaneously providing a human capital investment in their futures.
