There is little research which has investigated whether working life may affect health behaviors.
However, there is data suggesting that smoking as well as leisure activities are affected during times of stress.
Both theoretical work and research suggests that work may socialize people such that the use of leisure time for active pursuits, including exercise, may be contingent upon jobs which promote interaction, learning, and activity on the job.
In investigating whether the psychosocial structure of work might affect smoking and sedentary behavior, a subsample (n=7.201) of a representative sample of the Swedish population aged 16-65 years was selected for study.
