Abstract

Public Significance Statement—We investigated the statistical comparability of commonly used measures indexing alcohol and cigarette use, as well as socioeconomic status and discrimination across Black, Latinx, and White smokers. All of our measures were found to function differently across race/ethnicity, suggesting that between group comparisons of observed scores may introduce bias in estimating parameters across race/ethnicity.
