Tobacco Product Use and Associated Factors Among Middle and High School Students—United States, 2019.
MMWR Surveill Summ. 2019 Nov 6;68(12):1-22. doi: 10.15585/mmwr.ss6812a1.

To assess the prevalence of youth tobacco product use, CDC and FDA analyzed data from the 2019 National Youth Tobacco Survey. E-cigarettes were the most commonly cited tobacco product, currently used by 27.5% of high school students (4.1 million) and 10.5% of middle school students (1.2 million), followed by cigars, cigarettes, smokeless tobacco, hookahs, and pipe tobacco. Survey findings confirm that several factors continue to promote youth use of these products, including exposure to tobacco product advertising and promotions; the availability of flavored tobacco products; curiosity; and misperceptions about harm from tobacco product use. Comprehensive and sustained implementation of evidence-based tobacco control strategies, combined with FDA's regulation of tobacco products, is important for reducing all forms of tobacco product use among U.S. youths.
