Abstract

This report compares the health lifestyles of 15-year-old smokers and non-smokers in Scotland. The aim is to describe the overall patterning of adolescent health behaviour in relation to smoking so that a better understanding of
smokers’ lifestyles can be gained. The data were collected in 1998 from a sample of 1,724 fifteen-year-old Scottish secondary school students, as part of the EC-funded project, Control of Adolescent Smoking (CAS).
