To determine the effects of 5 years of community-wide cardiovascular health education on smoking prevalence and cessation, the authors analyzed data from the Stanford Five-City Project, an experimental field study with two treatment cities and two control cities.
Representative samples of the population aged 12-74 years were drawn at baseline and every 2 years thereafter to obtain four independent cross-sectional surveys; participants aged 25-74 years are included in this paper (n~440 per city per survey; total n=6,981).
The baseline sample was asked to return to three follow-up surveys, also 2 years apart, and those that did (n=805) constitute the cohort survey sample.
