|Abstract:||Asian American (AA) youth have low tobacco use rates, but Filipino youth report much higher use of tobacco than other AA youth, and Filipina girls have an especially high prevalence. In Hawaii, aggregated data from 2005, 2007, and 2009 Youth Tobacco Survey indicate that 20.1% (N=4200) of Filipina high school girls smoked, compared to only 5.6% and 5.3% of Japanese and Chinese girls respectively. While smoking prevalence fell for all high school girls in Hawaii between 2003 and 2005, it rose for Filipina girls from 12.4% to 13.7%. A pilot descriptive study with Filipina girls in Hawai‘i revealed that the family may influence tobacco use behaviors.|
