Abstract

Determinants of the onset of smoking among schoolchildren have been investigated in many cross-sectional surveys. An important object of longitudinal surveys is to confirm correlates, found in cross-sectional surveys, as predictors of behavioural change. A special subject in our cohort study is the influence of smoking policy.
