Smoking: Smoking cessation after experimental intervention

Description Usage Format Source References Examples

Description

Data from an experiment designed for the investigation of the effectiveness of a particular expert system intervention to convince people to quit smoking. N = 4,144 subjects were randomly assigned to either the control (assessment only) or the experimental condition (TTM intervention). Information was collected on their smoking habits and their attitudes towards smoking at the start of the study, at the sixth, twelfth, eighteenth, and twenty-fourth month. For more detailed information see Bergsma et al. (2009) and Prochaska et al. (2001).

The data are tabulated in Bergsma, Croon, and Hagenaars (2009, Tables 5.11 to 5.14).

Section 5.2.3 in Bergsma, Croon and Hagenaars (2009).
