Comparison of susceptibility rate differences between the control and intervention groups
Youth tobacco use intentions, Questions are 1) "Do you think you will try a cigarette soon?' (not asked of puffers), 2) "Do you think you will be smoking cigarettes one year from now?", and 3) "If one of your best friends were to offer you a cigarette, would you smoke it?" A never-smoker will be considered non-susceptible if answer to the first question is 'No' and answers to both questions 2 and 3 are 'Definitely not'; a puffer will be considered non-susceptible if answers to questions 2 and 3 are 'Definitely not'.
