WP5: New survey on 16-17 year olds

  • Objectives:
  1. To assess the occurrence of regular smoking among 16-17-olds in schools in five European countries, and inequalities in smoking between pupils of higher and lower levels of current education;
  2. To assess the extent of smoking within social networks of peers (within the same grade), and to determine how much these contribute to inequalities in smoking within the different countries;
  3. To assess whether the magnitude of these inequalities is associated with specific national tobacco control policies or educational systems.
