Various studies concluded that Black adolescents use tobacco and other drugs less than White adolescents.
The Black-White Differences typically were attributed to variations is background and life-style.
The objective of the research reported in this paper was to determine whether the presumed difference in tobacco use is due to Black-White differences in the validity of self-reports.
We used biochemical measures to compare the validity of self-reports of tobacco use by 1823 Black and White adolescents and to assess the contribution of variation in validity to Black-White differences in reported tobacco use.
