Differences in Tobacco Use Between Canada and the United States

Friday, April 30, 2010  
Jones A, Gulbis A, Baker EH. Differences in Tobacco Use between Canada and the United States. International Journal of Public Health. Epub December 23, 2009.

This study uses data from the Joint Canada/United States Survey of Health (JCUSH) and explores differences between Canada and the U.S. in smoker demographics and length of smoking. In both countries, the smoker profile is very similar: native-born, young White males without a college degree, with poor health, and who had been previously married. However, different smoker characteristics predict exposure to smoking for the two countries. In Canada, native-born men without a degree, with poor health and who had been previously married smoked more cigarettes per day. In the US, the only predictor was age; younger people smoked more cigarettes per day. The authors conclude that limiting the number of new smoking cases and converting smokers into non-smokers will have different target populations for Canada and the U.S.
