Smoking cessation – analysis of quitters using BHPS
Ludbrook, A. and Mavromaras, K. (HERU)
This project used the British Household Panel Survey data to model relapse rates of ex smokers beyond one year, which is the longest follow up generally included in intervention studies. The study considered what factors are associated with relapse or maintenance of non-smoking. This study found that younger people were more likely to relapse and to relapse sooner than older people and might be targeted for additional support.
