The purpose is to describe smoking behaviour of physicians and of the general population in the Scandinavian countries.
Data on smoking behaviour in physicians and in the population at large were collected from 14 surveys.
The smoking prevalence dropped among male and female physicians in the period under study.
Changes for the general male population were similar, but smoking among the general female population changed little.
If the present changes continue, physicians could be a smokefree profession by the year 2000.
