Most recently updated: April, 1997

While there has been a substantial increase in recent decades in the research and literature concerning tobacco use and the health effects of tobacco use, the focus on tobacco and older persons has been relatively limited. The following bibliography, prepared by The Center for Social Gerontology (TCSG), presents a comprehensive, albeit not all-encompassing, list of recent articles, as well as an ample selection of earlier articles, related to tobacco and the elderly. This is a broad collection of work in the tobacco and the elderly field, to be used as a starting point for research by health care professionals, aging and health care advocates, individuals working in tobacco control and prevention, public policymakers, and others. TCSG presents this bibliography in the hope that others will be encouraged to build on this base of research and expand the literature on this topic.
