Minnesota adolescent community cohort (MACC) study 2000-2013( )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Minnesota Adolescent Community Cohort (MACC) Study is a population-based, longitudinal study that enrolled 3636 youth from Minnesota and 605 youth from comparison states age 12 to 16 years in 2000-2001. Participants were surveyed by telephone semi-annually about their tobacco-related attitudes and behaviors. The goals of the study were to evaluate the effects of the Minnesota Youth Tobacco Prevention Initiative and its shutdown on youth smoking patterns, and to better define the patterns of development of tobacco use in adolescents. A multilevel sample was constructed representing individuals, local jurisdictions and the entire state, and data were collected to characterize each of these levels. Major topics covered by the survey are cigarette use, nicotine dependence, alcohol use and dependence, cigarette access, quitting smoking, use of other tobacco products and marijuana, parent smoking habits, tobacco marketing, emotions and stress perceptions, and perceptions and opinions of smoke-free laws, tobacco companies, and tobacco age restrictions. Demographic information includes age, education, ethnicity, gender, marital status, and income level

Barriers to Quitting Smoking Among Young Adults: The Role of Socioeconomic Status( )

in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Purpose: The aims of this analysis were to explore how self-reported barriers to quitting vary by socioeconomic status (SES) among young-adult smokers and to assess their relationship to quitting. Design: This analysis uses 2 waves of telephone-survey data from the Minnesota Adolescent Community Cohort study. Setting: Midwestern United States. Participants: Participants (n = 419) were smokers aged 17 to 24 years. Measures: Socioeconomic status was estimated using the highest level of education completed by the participants' parents. Demographics, smoking behavior, and perceived barriers to quitting were collected via survey questions. Analysis: Differences in barriers by SES were assessed using prevalence ratios (PRs). Relative risks were calculated to assess the association between barriers and quitting status 1 year later, testing for effect modification by SES. Results: Compared to the high SES group (n = 314), the low SES group (n = 105) was more likely to report several barriers to quitting; however, only the risk of gaining weight was significantly more common (PR: 1.38 [1.05-1.83]). There were no significant associations between barriers and quitting status 1 year later, but the number of cigarettes per day was consistently related to the likelihood of quitting 1 year later, regardless of SES. Conclusion: Despite the limited generalizability to racially diverse populations and different geographic locations, the results suggest perceived barriers may not differ by SES or predict quitting among young adults; however, nicotine dependence may play an important role
Trends in Awareness, Use of, and Beliefs About Electronic Cigarette and Snus Among a Longitudinal Cohort of US Midwest Young Adults( )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Abstract Introduction Few longitudinal studies have examined how awareness, use of, and beliefs about electronic cigarettes (e-cigarettes) and snus change over time. We assessed these trends in a cohort of young adults from the US Midwest. Methods Data were from the Minnesota Adolescent Community Cohort (MACC) Study, collected annually during 2010-2013 when participants were 21-29 years old (n = 2622). Participants were asked if they had heard of and ever used e-cigarettes and snus, and the number of days they used these products in the past 30 days. Beliefs about whether these products are less harmful than cigarettes, less addictive than cigarettes, and could help people quit smoking were assessed. Repeated measures multiple linear and logistic regression models, adjusting for demographics, peer smoking and smoking status, were used to assess trends. Results Compared to 2010-2011, participants in 2012-2013 were five times more likely to be aware of e-cigarettes, report ever used them, and report using them in the past 30-days. Increases in e-cigarette use were observed in all smoking status. Participants were also increasingly likely to believe that e-cigarettes are less harmful than combustible cigarettes and could help people quit smoking. There was only a modest increase in awareness of and ever using snus, as well as believing snus is less harmful than combustible cigarettes. These trends did not differ by smoking status. Conclusions The increasingly favorable beliefs about e-cigarettes may explain the increasing prevalence of their use particularly among young adults, both among smokers and nonsmokers. Implications Awareness and use of e-cigarettes have increased substantially over the past few years, and positive beliefs of e-cigarettes have also become more prevalent among young adults. Meanwhile, little changes in awareness, use of, and beliefs about snus among young adults. Given the potential of these products to have both positive and negative impact on public health depending on who use them and how they are used, strategically communicating the risks associated with e-cigarettes and snus use may help minimize the burden of tobacco use at the population level

A very detailed study of recreational facilities and planning priorities within the municipality which aims to provide council with a background to decision-making in order to enhance access to resources by residents and ensure a more equitable distribution of resources. The report is very critical of the recreation services provided by council, describing them as "inappropriate and ineffective". Resources in this area are said to be used significantly by non-residents, whereas community preferences were found to be for open spaces and recreation programs
