In a dynamic Two-Part Model (2PM), we find the effect of previous smoking on the participation decision to be decreasing with education among Swedish women, i.e. more educated are less state dependent. However, we do not find an analogous effect of education on the conditional intensity of consumption. Copyright (C) 2010 John Wiley & Sons, Ltd.
