Abstract

Tobacco smoking is highest among population groups which are the most socioeconomically disadvantaged. Internet-based smoking cessations programs have been found to be effective, though rates of internet access are not well known in disadvantaged populations. This study describes the rates of internet use and types of technology used to access the internet by a population of socially disadvantaged smokers. The study also examined relationships between sociodemographic and smoking behaviours with amount of internet use and type of device used.
