Smoking

For the purpose of monitoring trends in smoking, a person can be classified based on their “smoking status”. “Current smokers” are people who currently smoke cigarettes, even just occasionally.  “Former smokers” are people who are currently non-smokers but did smoke cigarettes at one time.  “Never smokers” are people who have completely abstained from smoking cigarettes in their lifetime. Here we present summary rates of adult “current smokers” and youth “never smokers”.
