Company: NIPO


By order of the "Stichting Volksgezondheid en Roken" (Foundation Health and Smoking, an organization sponsored by the Dutch Ministry of Health) NIPO interviewed in the period 5- 22nd march 1979 a sample of 2.474 youngsters between 10 and 15 years. The main objective of the survey was getting more data available about attitudes of youth towards smoking and about their smoking habits. Also questions were asked to learn more about the influence of the family and/or friends on smoking habits, about the knowledge of parents about the smoking habits of their children and about the moments when and where smoking takes place. Some results of the study can be compared with data from a survey about smoking habits of adults (sample size 21.058 persons) conducted in the first quarter of 1979.
