Revue canadienne de santé publique / Canadian Journal of Public Health, vol. 106, no 6, p. e369-e374.
Intentions : «The objective of this study was to estimate the proportion of daily smokers in Quebec who smoke while traveling in a car in which children are present, and to compare the characteristics of smokers who do and do not smoke in cars. Secondary objectives were to describe voluntary restrictions on smoking in cars, and beliefs about the existence and potential effectiveness of legislation prohibiting smoking in cars with children present.» (p. e370)
Échantillon/Matériau : L’étude est basée sur la participation de 754 adultes québécois.
Instruments : Questionnaire
Type de traitement des données : Analyse statistique
«The current study, carried out in 2011-12 in the province of Quebec, provides evidence that approximately 23% of smokers smoke in cars when children are present. Many smokers thought that legislation prohibiting smoking in cars with children present was already in effect, and most thought that such legislation would be effective. Overall these data provide evidence that legislation prohibiting smoking in cars with children present is needed in Quebec and that it would be effective. In particular, if smokers are unable or unwilling to provide a smoke-free environment in cars for children, it may be that this kind of legislation is essential to assure that Quebec children are protected from the health effects of exposure to SHS [second hand smoke].» (p. e373)
