This quantitative study was commissioned by the DHSSPS as part of their smoke-free monitoring and evaluation strategy after the introduction of smoke-free legislation in Northern Ireland in April 2007.
The research was undertaken to determine the impact of smoke-free legislation on non-smoking adults who live with a smoker.
Using research carried out both before and after the introduction of smoke-free legislation, this study details for the first time the attitudes and knowledge of non-smoking adults living with smokers in Northern Ireland, in relation to second-hand smoke.
The study also reports non-smokers’ exposure to second-hand smoke in a range of environments.
