Back to Smoking Cessation--By Risks, Conditions, and Quality of Life Measures*.

*Asked of respondents who stopped smoking within the past year or now smoke every day or some days.

*These risk tables are stand-alone tables, not broken down further by geographic strata.

^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.
