OBJECTIVES: The association between parent-reported postnatal sec- ondhand tobacco smoke exposure in the home and neurobehavioral disorders (attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder, learning disabili- ties, and conduct disorders) among children younger than 12 years in the United States was examined using the 2007 National Survey on Children’s Health. Excess neurobehavioral disorders attributable to secondhand smoke (SHS) exposure in the home in 2007 were further investigated.

METHODS: The methods used in this study were multivariable logistic regression models that accounted for potential confounders and com- plex survey designs to evaluate associations.
