Economic Insecurity and Bad Habits: the Effect on Alcohol and Tobacco Consumption
Despite the fact that the correlation of economic insecurity and bad habits is well-grounded in the literature, the nature and degree of interconnection can vary significantly depending on the background characteristics, the considered bad habits, the period under consideration, and also the method of measuring economic insecurity. Given this, it seems interesting to study the problem on Russian data, which is the purpose of this work. The analysis of the impact of economic insecurity on bad habits has shown that, in general, the hypothesis of the positive effect of economic insecurity on bad habits is confirmed for both tobacco consumption and alcohol consumption. At the same time, the need to compile separate models for men and women in further studies was identified.
