The report provides analyses of data from the 1987-88 study of California Activity Pattern (CAP) Survey conducted for the California Air Resources Board (CARB), in which a cross-section sample of 1579 California adults aged 18 and older reported on their potential exposure to a variety of environmental pollutants. Particular attention in the current report is on the CAP data on active and passive (ETS) smoking for the day prior to interview on which these respondents reported a time diary of all their day's activities. These data were subjected to multiple classification analysis (MCA), a multivariate analysis technique that controls for the effects of several background factors simultaneously.
