Abstract
Introduction Secondhand smoke (SHS) exposure causes disease and death among nonsmokers. With a plethora of smoke-free legislation implemented and a steady decrease in cigarette consumption noted over the past decade in the U.S., this study assessed trends in indoor SHS exposure among U.S. adolescents in grades 6–12 during 2000–2009.

Trends in indoor SHS exposure during 2000–2009 were assessed overall and by socio-demographic characteristics, using ...
