*Data in this table were derived from the tobacco use questions:1) Have you smoked at least 100 cigarettes
in your entire life? and 2) Do you now smoke cigaretteseveryday, someday or not at all.
Overall smoking prevalence estimates can be obtained by adding the 'Smoke everyday' and 'Smoke somedays'
rates.

= Percentage, C.I.(95%) = Confidence Interval (at 95 percent probability level).
Percentages are weighted to population characteristics.
Unless stated differently above, Missing, 'Don't know', and Refused responses are excluded.
