This study finds that smoking is greatest among women who are full-time homemakers in medium and especially small towns. This is a new development and suggests the locus of smoking among women has moved away from its association with the job in cities to the home in less populated areas.
This study was supported by a grant from the National Institute of Minority Health and Health Disparities (U54MD008176).
