Abstract

This study examines smoking behaviour among Canadian adolescents ages 12 to 19 as a function of factors such as the number of smokers in the home, home restrictions on smoking, provincial regulations, the price of cigarettes, education level, and household income. Using data from the Canadian Community Health Survey from 2011-2012, this study attempts to measure the significance and impact of each factor on adolescent smoking through regression analysis. Reducing adult smoking is an important challenge for the health policy makers. One way to reduce adult smoking is to curb adolescent smoking. In this sense, the results of this study will benefit policy makers since this study will identify factors that can curb adolescent smoking.
