Darker skin color is associated with a lower likelihood of smoking cessation among men but not women
This dataset allows interested parties to explore whether skin color is associated with short- and long-term smoking cessation using a sample Blacks and Whites enrolled in a smoking cessation trial. Race and sex can be evaluated as moderators of the association between skin color and smoking cessation. This dataset can also be used to determine whether the association would be stronger among Blacks and men than among Whites and women. Last, the dataset includes many biological and psychosocial factors, including nicotine and cotinine concentrations, discrimination, distrust, and neuroticism, which can be used to identify potential mechanisms of the association between skin color and smoking cessation.
