*Asked of those who have smoked at least 100 cigarettes in their lifetime and currently smoke cigarettes.

PLEASE NOTE: Due to changes in the weighting methodology and other factors, results from 2011 are NOT comparable to previous years.

***The estimate was suppressed because it did not meet statistical reliability standards. See BRFSS 2011 Annual Results Technical Notes for more details.

^Use caution in interpreting cell sizes less than 50, % = 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.
