In this study, we derive national estimates of the prevalence of children's exposure to parental smoking in West Germany.
The estimates are based on a national health survey conducted in 1987 and refer to those parents living in the same household as the child.
Estimated prevalences of maternal smoking range from 18.9% among children aged <2 years to more than 30% among 2-5 and 6-13 year old children.
Estimates of paternal smoking prevalence are considerably higher: 33.7% among children <2 years old and 43.1% and 46.8% among 2-5 and 6-13 year old children, respectively.
The prevalence of at least one smoking household member was 49.9% among 2-5 year old children, while a clear majority of children aged <2 years (58.8%) and 6-13 (67.5%) were living in a household with at least one smoker.
