  • To estimate the prevalence of smoking among Chinese and Vietnamese youth in the Houston area compared with non-Asian American communities.
  • To study the relationship between environmental characteristics (both pro- and anti-tobacco) and tobacco initiation and use among Chinese and Vietnamese youth.
  • To explore if degree of acculturation is related to tobacco initiation and use among Chinese and Vietnamese youth.
