Tobacco Product Use and Cessation Indicators Among Adults — United States, 2018.
MMWR Morb Mortal Wkly Rep 2019;68:860-864.

To assess estimates of tobacco product use among U.S. adults age 18 years or older, CDC, FDA, and NCI analyzed data from the 2018 National Health Interview Survey. In 2017, approximately 49 million (1 in 5) U.S. adults currently used any tobacco product, with cigarette smoking reaching an all-time low of 13.7%. Among current tobacco product users, about 84% (41.2 million) smoked combustible tobacco products and 19% (9.3 million) used two or more tobacco products. These findings highlight the importance of evidence-based, population-level strategies to accelerate progress toward reducing tobacco-related death and disease in the United States. These strategies include tobacco price increases, high-impact, antitobacco mass-media campaigns, comprehensive smoke-free laws, barrier-free access to tobacco cessation counseling and approved medications, and FDA regulation of tobacco products.
