Özet

The study aimed to estimate smoking prevalence and associated risk factors among Turkish adolescents residing in orphanages and to investigate whether "institutionalization" (i.e., factors leading to institutionalization and/or those present in the institutional environment) makes adolescents more prone "to try" and/or "continue" smoking.
