Abstract

Research into smoking prevention and cessation programmes aimed towards schoolchildren necessitates accurate information of smoking behaviour in regular cross-sectional and also longitudinal studies. This study identifies changing patterns of tobacco use among young people between England and Japan in 1992. This is essential in identifying the problem and in monitoring progress in reducing tobacco-related diseases and further, designing or choosing the most effective interventions.
