Current Cigarette Smoking Among Adults — United States, 2005–2014.
MMWR Weekly / Vol. 64 / No. 44 November 13, 2015
CDC assessed the most recent national estimates of smoking prevalence among adults aged ≥18 years using data from the 2014 National Health Interview Survey. The findings indicate that the proportion of US adults who smoke cigarettes declined from 20.9% in 2005 to 16.8% in 2014; declines were also observed in the proportions of daily smokers who smoked 20-29 (34.9% to 27.4%) or ≥30 cigarettes per day (12.7% to 6.9%). In 2014, prevalence of cigarette smoking was higher among males, adults aged 25-44 years, multiracial or American Indian/Alaska Natives, and those who have a general education development (GED) certificate, live below the federal poverty level, live in the Midwest, are insured through Medicaid or are uninsured, have a disability or limitation, or are lesbian, gay, or bisexual.
