Contextual factors, indoor tanning, and tanning dependence in young women.
Am J Health Behav 2015; 39(3):372-9AJ

Abstract

OBJECTIVES

To investigate the association of contextual factors such as cost, tanning accessibility, regulations, or marketing and indoor tanning or tanning dependence.

METHODS

One hundred thirty-nine college-aged female indoor tanners completed a questionnaire between 2009 and 2011.

RESULTS

Higher scores on tanning dependence and assessment in the spring/summer (versus the fall/winter) were associated with more frequent indoor tanning in the last 30 days (ps < .05). More frequent indoor tanning, greater session length, and more trouble paying for tanning were associated with higher scores on tanning dependence (ps < .05).

CONCLUSIONS

Public health research and practice could benefit from attention to such contextual factors as tanning cost and regulations regarding session length.
