State-Specific Prevalence of Tobacco Product Use Among U.S. Women:  Tobacco Use Supplement to the Current Population Survey, 2018-2019

CDC’s Office on Smoking and Health, in collaboration with the National Cancer Institute and the Food and Drug Administration, is releasing the following tobacco-related research brief in the journal, Preventing Chronic Disease

State-Specific Prevalence of Tobacco Product Use Among U.S. Women:  Tobacco Use Supplement to the Current Population Survey, 2018-2019

During 2018-2019, at least 1 in 15 women currently used some form of tobacco product.

Use of any tobacco product among women significantly differed by age, race/ethnicity, education level, annual household income, marital status, disability status, and U.S. region.  Researchers assessed tobacco product use among U.S. women aged 18 years or older based on data from the 2018-2019 Tobacco Use Supplement to the Current Population Survey.  Consistent with prior research, prevalence was highest among American Indian/Alaska Native women and non-Hispanic women of other races, women with a disability, those with low annual household income, and with a lower educational level.  State-specific current use of any tobacco product (cigarettes, e-cigarettes, cigars, regular pipes, water pipes or hookah, and smokeless tobacco) ranged from 6.6% (California) to 23.1% (West Virginia), with cigarettes being the most commonly used product.  Comprehensive tobacco control strategies, including targeted interventions among those with higher rates of use, can reduce tobacco use among all women.
