The smoking behavior of adults can negatively impact children through exposure to environmental tobacco smoke and by modeling this unhealthy behavior. The study specifically analyzed the relationship between social cohesion and smoking behaviors of adults living with children using data from the 2009 California Health Interview Survey. Adults living with children reported their levels of social cohesion and smoking behaviors (N=13,978). Logistic regression models were used to predict odds of being a current smoker or living in a household in which smoking was allowed, from social cohesion.

Authors found 13 percent of the sample overall was current smokers and 3.74 percent lived in households in which smoking was allowed. Logistic regression models showed that each one-unit increase in social cohesion is associated with reduced odds of being a current smoker and reduced odds of living in a household in which smoking is allowed, after controlling for sociodemographic characteristics.
