Mechanisms Linking Socioeconomic Status to Smoking Cessation

Mechanisms Linking Socioeconomic Status to Smoking Cessation: A Structural Equation Modeling Approach.
Businelle MS, Kendzor DE, Reitzel LR, Costello TJ, Cofta-Woerpel L, Li Y, Mazas CA, Vidrine JI, Cinciripini PM, Greisinger AJ, Wetter DW. Health Psychol. 2010 May;29(3):262-73.

This study was designed to develop and test a conceptual model of the links between socioeconomic status (SES) and smoking cessation. Findings indicated that SES had significant direct and indirect effects in cessation. In particular, neighborhood disadvantage, social support, negative affect/stress, and agency mediated the relation between SES and smoking cessation. The authors concluded that policy, community, and individual-level interventions that target low SES smokers and address the specific pathways identified in the current model could potentially mitigate the impact of SES on cessation.
