Maternal smoking during pregnancy and delinquency of the offspring : an association without causation ?
The aim was to evaluate the association between maternal smoking in pregnancy and delinquency of the offspring in youth and early adulthood.
The study population consisted of 5966 male members of the Northern Finland birth cohort of 1966, of whom 355 (6.0%) had committed a crime which led to a criminal record by early 1989, which was taken as an indicator of delinquency.
Data collection was started during pregnancy and the development and health of the children was followed up continuously to the age of 14.
