Document title: Young adult smokers in Scotland
Description: This report provides an analysis of young adult (age 16-24) smokers, drawing mainly on the Scottish Household Survey. It also draws on a range of sources for particular populations with high smoking prevalence that are not covered by or likely to be very under-represented in the Scottish Household Survey. It considers the characteristics of young adult smokers - who they are, how/where they spend their time - and trends over time to help inform the development and targeting of practical responses to reduce smoking uptake in these transition years.
