*This question was asked only of respondents who reported smoking 100 or more cigarettes in her/his entire life
and currently smoking every day or on some days.

PLEASE NOTE: Due to changes in the weighting methodology and other factors, results from 2013
are NOT comparable to 2010 and earlier years.

***The estimate was suppressed because it did not meet statistical reliability standards. See BRFSS 2013 Annual Results Technical Notes for more details.
