Smoking links between mothers and young people

SmokingInter-generational concordance of smoking status between mothers and young people aged 10-15 in the UK uses Understanding Society to investigate the smoking status of young people aged 11-15 and their co-resident mothers. In addition to identifying who smokes and who doesn’t, the research looks at family factors that contribute to the odds of mothers and children being smokers or non-smokers.
