[eng] A microeconometric analysis of smoking in the UK Health and Lifestyle Survey by Andrew M. Jones This paper provides an overview of microeconometric evidence on various aspects of smoking using data from the UK Health and Lifestyle Survey (HALS1). In doing so it illustrates how the choice of an appropriate statistical model is influenced by the survey design and the definition and measurement of variables. Results are reported for parametric survival analysis of the age of starting and the number of years of smoking; univariate and bivariable probit models for attempts and success in quitting smoking; and both generalised Tobit and count data models for the number of cigarettes smoked. [fre] Une analyse micro-économétrique de la consommation de tabac basée sur l'enquête UK Health and Lifestyle par Andrew M. Jones Cet article propose un ensemble d'analyses micro-économétriques relatives à divers aspects de la consommation de tabac en utilisant les données de l'enquête UK Health and Lifestyle (HALSl). Ce faisant, cette analyse illustre comment le choix d'une modélisation statistique appropriée est influencé par les caractéristiques de l'enquête, la définition et la mesure des variables. Cet article reproduit les résultats d'un modèle de survie paramétrique expliquant l'âge auquel un individu commence à fumer et le nombre d'années pendant lesquelles il a fumé. Nous indiquons les résultats de modèles Probit univariés et bivariés expliquant les tentatives et réussites dans l'arrêt de la consommation de tabac ainsi que les résultats de modèles Tobit généralisés expliquant le nombre de cigarettes fumées.
