Smoking among secondary-school students in Bangladesh
Smoking is very prevalent in Bangladesh, but the only systematic survey that has been carried out among secondary-school children is the one by myself and S. Alam in 1994, supported by BMRC and the World Bank, which involved 7402 students. We therefore decided to conduct a survey in 30 secondary schools in the capital city of Dhaka and in the port city of Chittagong, which is the second largest city in the country, situated 340 km from Dhaka. Communication between the two cities is excellent, and there is a free flow of people of all ages and categories. As Dhaka is the capital, students come from all outlying districts; in Chittagong, most of the students are local.
