Abstract

This study examines how parents’ smoking behavior is transmitted to their children, focusing on the role of gender identity. Through an original survey, respondents were asked about their parents’ smoking behavior when the respondents had been primary-school students. Findings of a regression analysis revealed that the respondents were more likely to smoke if the parent of the same gender smoked frequently. Furthermore, a mother was less likely to smoke if she had a daughter, while a father was more likely to smoke if he had a son.
