  • *p<.05; **p<.01; ***p<.001.

  • Regression coefficients based on separate models for each independent variable where estimates were adjusted for age, sex, education, income, cigarettes per day, past year quit attempts, survey mode (phone vs web), survey year and year of recruitment for the combined model and for the same covariates except survey year for the stratified models.

  • ‡Variation in n is due to missing data on one or more independent variables included in the models.

  • –, Not applicable; β, regression coefficients; HWL, health warning label; N, number of person-wave observations; n, number of unique individuals.
