Prevalence of Current Cigarette Smoking among Adults

Notes: Data are based on household interviews of a sample of the civilian noninstitutionalized population. Current cigarette smokers were defined as those who had smoked more than 100 cigarettes in their lifetime and now smoke every day or some days. The analyses excluded persons with unknown cigarette smoking status (about 2% of respondents each year).
