21st INRC [Research Presentation] Purpose: The purpose of this study was to explore the relationship between smoking behaviors and demographic characteristics and family in aborigines in middle Taiwan. Methods: The secondary data analysis was used (N=562). Household data from the Bureau of Health, Taichung County involved an aborigine population aged 20-50 years and resided in three regions of the middle Taiwan. The Chi-square test and stratum-specific logistic regression model were used to analyze data. Results: The smoking rate was 57.5% (74.1% males and 38.9% females). The majority of subjects were 36-40 years old, the education level of junior high, employed, and unmarried. There 28.1% were never thought of quitting smoking. Significant differences were found between smoking behaviors and demographic characteristics (gender, age, education levels, the head of the household, body mass index, and diabetes) and family (marital status, employment, underage children, numbers of smokers, and reside areas) (p<.05). The sex (OR 11.67; 95% CI 6.05-22.49), education levels (OR 0.64; 95% CI 0.47-0.87), the head of the household (OR 4.48; 95% CI 2.23-9.03), numbers of smokers (OR 16.45; 95%CI9.71-27.88) were predictive factors for the smoking behaviors. Conclusion: In the light of aborigines in middle Taiwan, the findings provide the information about the related factors of smoking, especially male, lower education, the head of the household, and numbers of smokers in the family. Therefore, to reduce aboriginals smoking rate should focus on the important predictive factors of smoking.
