Tobacco Use Among Middle and High School Students — United States, 2011–2014. 
CDC Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report. April 17, 2015: 64(14);381-385.
Current e-cigarette use among middle and high school students increased from 2013 to 2014. Findings from the 2014 National Youth Tobacco Survey show that current e-cigarette use among high school students increased from 4.5% in 2013 to 13.4% in 2014. Among middle school students, current e-cigarette use increased from 1.1% in 2013 to 3.9% in 2014. Increases were also observed for current hookah use. For high school students, hookah use increased from 5.2% in 2013 to 9.4% in 2014. For middle school students hookah use increased from 1.1% to 2.5%. The increases in e-cigarette and hookah use offset declines in use of more traditional products such as cigarettes and cigars. There was no decline in overall tobacco use between 2011 and 2014. Overall rates of any tobacco product use were 24.6 percent for high school students and 7.7 percent for middle school students in 2014.
