MMWR: Tobacco Product Use Among Adults – United States, 2017

FULL RESOURCES FROM CDC AVAILABLE HERE

To assess estimates of tobacco product use among U.S. adults 18 years or older, CDC, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), and the National Cancer Institute (NCI) analyzed data from the 2017 National Health Interview Survey.  In 2017, approximately 47 million (1 in 5) U.S. adults currently used any tobacco product, and an estimated 14 percent of adults were current cigarette smokers, down from 15.5 percent in 2016.  Among current tobacco product users, about 87 percent (41 million) smoked combustible tobacco products, and 19 percent (9 million) used two or more tobacco products.  These findings highlight the importance of evidence-based, population-level strategies to accelerate anti-tobacco mass-media campaigns, comprehensive smoke-free laws, barrier-free access to tobacco-cessation counseling and approved medications, and FDA regulation of tobacco products.
