Back to Tobacco Use.

* Data in this table were derived from the tobacco use questions 1 and 2.
Overall smoking prevalence estimates can be obtained by adding 'Smoke everyday' and 'Smoke somedays' rates.

^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.
