  Abstract: The distribution of cigarette smoking   (as well as of cigar and pipe smoking in men) by occupation was   examined in over 800,000 men and women age 45-70 who were   enrolled in the American Cancer Society's prospective study in   1982. Striking variations were seen for men--less striking   variations for women. Smoking rates were significantly higher in   groups exposed to a number of occupational hazards, compared to   groups not so exposed. A considerable amount of variation is   related to social class, but some individual occupations exhibit   notably high (law enforcement) or low (clergy) smoking rates.   This information can be quite useful in planning morbidity or   mortality studies of specific occupational groups or in analyzing   data from existing studies.
