Abstract

Background. Few studies have investigated the association between age at starting smoking and the average number of cigarettes smoked per day in adulthood. To provide further evidence on this issue, we analyzed data from the Catalan Health Interview Survey (CHIS). Methods. The CHIS was conducted in 1994 on a randomly selected sample (N = 15,000) of the population of Catalonia, Spain. A total of 4,897 current or exsmokers (3,276 males and 1,621 females) were included for analysis. Age-standardized proportions of subjects smoking
