Objective: To determine associations between younger youths' susceptibility to smoking and four household variables related to tobacco socialization: parental and sibling smok- ing, restrictions on smoking in the home and exposure to smoking in vehicles. Methods: A secondary analysis of the 2004/05 Canadian Youth Smoking Survey used logistic regression to investigate the relationships between youth susceptibility to smok- ing, gender, and four household variables related to tobacco socialization. Susceptibility to smoking was operationalized by three levels of smoking experience and intention: non-susceptible non-smoker, susceptible non-smoker and experimenter/smoker. The national survey included 29 243 grade 5 to 9 students from randomly sampled public and private schools in ten provinces. Results: For non-smokers, the odds of being susceptible to smoking increased with hav- ing a sibling who smokes, a lack of a total household smoking ban and riding in a vehicle with a smoker in the previous week, when adjusting for all other variables in the model. These variables also increased the odds of being an experimenter/smoker versus a susceptible non-smoker. Parent smoking status was not significant in these models.
