IMMIGRANTS MORE LIKELY TO SUPPORT BANS ON SMOKING

Rating: 2 votes, 5.00 average.


Interesting. I guess as I'm in Europe all week and see
smokers everywhere, I've been working under the assumption that smoking is much
more prominent outside the US and immigrants would therefore be more likely to
be smokers. But apparently immigrants to the US are coming in bigger numbers
from countries where smoking is less prominent. From the AP:



>



The strongest American advocates
for smoking bans in public venues are the newest Americans, one study said.>>



>



Immigrants and their children
were most likely to approve of smoke-free spaces, according to an analysis of
data from the U.S. Census' Current Population Survey from 1995-2002.>>



>



Over those years, 75.7 percent
of foreign-born U.S. residents supported a smoking ban in at least four
different types of public space, while 59.1 percent of U.S.-born Americans with
U.S.-born parents did so. Of>>



the total population, 61.6
percent said they would support a ban in at least four of the six public venues
listed, which included bars, restaurants, offices, hospitals, and indoors
sports venues and shopping malls.>>

    Lots of good coffee, but being on a diet made the trip less interesting.
