Characteristics and correlates of cigarette use among recent U.S. veterans

This project documents rates of smoking and quit attempts among veterans receiving Veteran's Health Administration (VHA) health care and describes the relationship between current smoking use/cessation and demographic characteristics, quality of life, and potential alcohol misuse. © Taylor & Francis Group, LLC.
