  1. Tobacco use in Mizoram, India : Sociodemographic differences in pattern.

    Article - En anglais

    A study on tobacco use was carried out in Aizawl district of Mizoram, India, to assess the prevalence and pattern of tobacco use.

    An area served by two Sub-health Centers representing town and village population were selected for a household survey. 375 people (age 10 years and above) were interviewed about their habits of taking tobacco.

    Use of tobacco was high among males (56.6%) and females (45.7%), but the high prevalence of smoking among males (42.3%) and chewing among females (27.9%) indicates the existence of sex differences in tobacco use pattern.

    Age and occupation had significant association with tobacco use but influence of education was very low and its association was not significant.

    Mean age for start of tobacco chewing and smoking for males and females varied significantly.

    However, the mean age of start for adolescent and young age (10-29 years) tobacco users was 17.2 years (SD ± 2.3).

    Though there are some limitations to this study, these findings revealed differential patterns of tobacco use which is valuable information for prevention effort.
