Tobacco use among Year 10 and 12 students in New Zealand: a report on the Global Youth Tobacco Survey data

This report presents findings from the New Zealand Youth Lifestyle Study 2002 Survey (YLS). The purposes of the survey were to monitor smoking related behaviours and attitudes among young people; monitor any impacts of tobacco control interventions on young people; and be able to make international comparisons. The YLS is conducted biennially and plays an important role in the surveillance of tobacco use among young people in New Zealand.
