MMWR: Adult Tobacco Survey: Surveillance Summaries

Friday, April 30, 2010  
Adult Tobacco Survey --- 19 States, 2003—2007. Surveillance Summaries
Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. MMWR. April 16, 2010;59(03):1-74.

This report provides data from the Adult Tobacco Survey (ATS) administered in 19 states from 2003-2007. During this time period, the data indicate that a median of 19.2% of adults smoked cigarettes, while many fewer adults smoked cigars (median 6.4%) or used smokeless tobacco (median 3.5%). While the majority (median 82.5%) used only one tobacco product, nearly one-fifth used more than one. Younger adults were more likely to use multiple products than older adults. Just over half of cigarette smokers reported they would try to quit in the next six months (median 58.4%) and just under half had made an attempt to quit in the previous year (median 46.8%). The majority of adults were supportive of smoke-free policies as well as of an increase in tobacco excise tax.
