5090.0: Wednesday, November 15, 2000: 12:30 PM-2:00 PM

Findings from the 1996 Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Study of Smoking and Tobacco Use Among Young People

The purpose of this session is to present 5 papers on examining varying aspects of adolescent tobacco practices and attitudes all using data from a nationally representative probability sample collected in 1996. The data are some of the most recent available on the topic, and includes questions that have not been previously asked. The presentations that would be part of this session (which include topics such as brand preference over time and youth cessation) would build greatly and expand the current adolescent tobacco practice and attitudes literature. While the presentations could be made separately throughout the APHA program, continuity and efficiency would be better served by presenting these papers as a body of work flowing from the same source data
