Breaking bad habits by education : smoking dynamics among Swedish women

Kjellsson, Gustav LU ; Gerdtham, Ulf LU and Lyttkens, Carl Hampus LU (2011) In Health Economics 20(7). p.876-881
Abstract
In a dynamic Two-Part Model (2PM), we find the effect of previous smoking on the participation decision to be decreasing with education among Swedish women, i.e. more educated are less state dependent. However, we do not find an analogous effect of education on the conditional intensity of consumption.
