What type of education had the most protective effect?

Hi Fiona,

The authors measured education using the UK’s national vocational qualification levels (NVQ). They found that the highest level of education (NVQ-5, which includes postgraduate degrees such as Master’s and Doctorates) shared the strongest association with a reduced probability of taking up smoking and an increased probability of quitting.


Yet another proof of the importance and value of education! Yey! :)
