Med J Aust. 1977 Sep 3;2(10):327-8. doi: 10.5694/j.1326-5377.1977.tb99167.x.


Australian smoking patterns have been surveyed in 1974 and 1976. There appears to be a slight downward trend in male smoking and a slight increase in female smoking. Smoking is more prevalent in the cities than in the country, and among blue collar workers than among white collar workers. Usage of "low tar" cigarettes is also increasing.
