Abstract

This chapter systematically reviews recent research on the prevalence and correlates of indoor tanning. We review the literature on the extent to which indoor tanning facilities are accessible to individuals in various geographic regions in the United States and internationally. Documenting the prevalence and accessibility of indoor tanning provides an indication of the need for interventions to reduce engagement in this health-damaging behavior, and also facilitates tracking of future trends in indoor tanning. Examination of the correlates of indoor tanning provides insight on populations that might benefit most from relevant policy changes or public health interventions. The chapter also considers several issues regarding the measurement of indoor tanning behaviors. Directions for future research are outlined throughout the chapter.
