Tobacco Use Prevention (Asked January--June Only)
--By Risks, Conditions, and Quality of Life Measures*

States add a special tax to cigarettes. The national average is $0.84. and the NC tax is 5 cents.
How much additional tax on a pack of cigarettes would you be willing to support if a considerable portion of the money raised was used to fund
smoking prevention programs for our youth and provide treatment options for tobacco users who want to quit?

*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.
