Socioeconomic and demographic differences in exposure to environmental tobacco smoke at work: the Scania Public Health Survey 2000.
Scand J Public Health 2004; 32(3):194-202SJ

Abstract

BACKGROUND

A study was undertaken to investigate the sociodemographic distribution of workplace exposure to environmental tobacco smoke (ETS) in a Swedish working population sample.

METHODS

8,270 individuals were assessed by questionnaire in the Scania Public Health Survey. The influence of sociodemographic factors on ETS exposure at work was investigated by multivariable regression analysis.

RESULTS

Individuals under 25 years old were at highest risk of ETS exposure. Male skilled manual workers and female unskilled manual workers had higher adjusted odds ratios (OR 4.0, 95% CI: 3.1-5.3 and OR 3.2, 95% CI: 2.2-4.7, respectively) of ETS exposure than non-manual high-level employees.

CONCLUSIONS

ETS should be recognized as a factor contributing to health inequalities. Women of childbearing age need protective strategies.
