Abstract

The effect of work-site environment on smokers' attitudes toward, satisfaction with, intentions to changes, and actual change in smoking behavior was investigated. Data were collected initially on 836 subjects who represented a 10% random sample of individuals participating in an ongoing health promotion project for state employees. This group was resurveued a year later. Age, race, sex, income and peer pressure were among the significant variables in predicting outcomes of number of cigarettes smoked, satisfaction with smoking, intent to change smoking behavior, and change in smoking behavior.
