2007 BRFSS Survey Results: Davidson County

Tobacco Use Prevention

States add a special tax to cigarettes. The national average is $0.92 and the NC tax recently increased to $0.35.
How much additional tax on a pack of cigarettes, above the current 35 cents, 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?

^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.
