  1. Note: nj = neighborhood; ni = individuals. All models are controlled for individual (age, sex, nationality, and SES) and neighborhood (highest income quintile, urbanity of the municipality, home maintenance in the neighborhood) level characteristics as well as change of neighborhood social capital between 1998 and 2002. aReference category: ex- or current smoker. bAn ordered logistic regression multi-level analysis was performed. cReference category: unhealthy pattern. dReference category: less often.
