Increases in Light and Intermittent Smoking Among Asian Americans and Non-Hispanic Whites

Asian Americans are the fastest growing immigrant group in the United States and are more likely to be light and intermittent smokers (LITS) compared with non-Hispanic Whites (NHWs). LITS experience adverse health effects related to smoking. Previous research has aggregated Asian American ethnic groups, masking important differences between groups. We sought to compare LITS rates before and after the 1998 Master Settlement Agreement (MSA) among Asian American subgroups and NHWs in California utilizing data from the California Tobacco Surveys (CTS).
