Back to Smoking Cessation.

*Asked of respondents who stopped smoking within the past year or now smoke every day or some days AND who saw a doctor, nurse, or other health professional in the past 12 months.

^Use caution in interpreting percentages with a numerator of less than 20. N = numerator, % = Percentage, C.I.(95%) = Confidence Interval (at 95 percent probability level).
Percentages are weighted to population characteristics and therefore cannot be calculated exactly from the numbers in this table.
