Abstract
OBJECTIVES
Smoking prevalence among Korean men in their thirties is substantially high (approximately 50%). An in-depth analysis of smoking trends among young adults in their twenties is necessary to devise antismoking policies for the next 10 years. This study aimed to identify the contributions of age, period, and birth cohort effects on smoking prevalence in young adults.
METHODS
Subjects comprised 181,136 adults (83,947 men: 46.3%; 97,189 women: 53.7%) aged 19 to 30 years from the 2008-2013 Korea Community Health Survey. Smoking prevalence adjusted with reference to the 2008 population was applied to the age-period-cohort (APC) model to identify the independent effects of each factor.
RESULTS
For men, smoking prevalence rapidly escalated among subjects aged 19 to 22 years and slowed down among those aged 23 to 30 years, declined during 2008 to 2010 but stabilized during 2011 to 2013, and declined in birth cohorts prior to 1988 but stabilized in subjects born after 1988. However, in APC models, smoking prevalence increased with age in the 1988 to 1991 birth cohort. In this birth cohort, smoking prevalence at age 19 to 20 years was approximately 24% but increased to 40% when the subjects turned 23 to 24 years. For women, smoking prevalence was too low to generate consistent results.
CONCLUSIONS
Over the past six years and in recent birth cohorts, smoking prevalence in adults aged 19 to 30 years has declined and is stable. Smoking prevalence should be more closely followed as it remains susceptible to an increase depending on antismoking policies or social conditions.
Summary
Korean summary
우리나라 남자의 30대와 40대의 흡연율은 약 50% 수준으로 매우 높다. 앞으로 10년 뒤에 이들 연령대로 진입하는 20대와 30대 젊은 청년층의 흡연율의 추이를 심층 분석하는 것은 10년 뒤 금연정책 준비에 필요한 기초자료가 될 것이다. 이 연구의 목적은 젊은 청년의 흡연율의 변화추이에 영향을 주는 연령, 연도, 출생코호트 효과를 파악하고자 하였다. 지난 6년 동안 19-30세의 흡연율은 전체적으로 연도가 증가하고 최근 출생코호트로 올수록 감소하는 경향을 보였다. 그러나 최근 출생코호트의 흡연율은 앞으로 금연정책이나 사회적인 상황에 따라 여전히 증가할 여지가 있으므로 주의 깊은 관찰이 필요할 것으로 생각된다.
