New CHEMP publication on smoking

CHEMP is pleased to announce the release of a new publication by CHEMP Director Christopher J Gerry and CHEMP Research Fellow, Diana Quirmbach.  The paper, “Gender, education and Russia’s tobacco epidemic: A life-course approach” examines the smoking histories of Russian’s surveyed in the  Russia Longitudinal Monitoring Survey of HSE (RLMS-HSE) and the Global Adult Tobacco Survey (GATS).The authors examine the dynamics of smoking patterns over the past 7 decades and find that smoking rates differ most strongly by gender within all cohorts, but that this differential has decreased over time, driven by increases in female smoking and more recently by decreases in smoking among men. The publication appears in Social Science and Medicine, a Q1 journal and one of the leading outlets in the Public Health field.
