Prevalence of Electronic Cigarette Use Among Adult Workers — United States, 2017-2018

CDC’s National Institute on Occupational Safety and Health’s Respiratory Health Division, in collaboration with CDC’s Office on Smoking and Health, is releasing the following tobacco-related article in the journal, Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report.

An estimated 5.3 million U.S. workers currently used e-cigarettes during 2017-2018

Among an estimated 156 million U.S. workers, and estimated 3.4% (5.3 million) were current e-cigarette users in 2017-2018, half of whom also used combustible tobacco products.  Prevalence of e-cigarette use was highest among workers in the accommodation and food services industry and food preparation and serving-related occupations.  Continued monitoring of e-cigarette use among workers is important to inform the development and implementation of strategies to minimize population risks of use of e-cigarettes while continuing to explore their potential utility for cessation among adult cigarette smokers.  To improve the health of workers, employers can integrate comprehensive and effective tobacco cessation programs into health promotion programs in the workplace.
