Beliefs about smoking and health and attitudes toward tobacco control measures.
The opinions of a representative sample of adult South Africans about the effects of smoking on health and their attitudes toward tobacco control measures were surveyed by means of an interviewer-administered questionnaire.
Seventy-five per cent of the respondents were black and 55,3% were female.
More than 50% of blacks and Asians (61,7% and 53,2%) were non-smokers, whereas 52,1% of « coloureds » were current smokers and 23,8% of whites ex-smokers.
The majority of smokers (68, 5%) acknowledged the harmful effects of direct smoking and a larger percentage of non- and ex-smokers (79,7% and 77% respectively) shared this view.
