Supplementary notes

Data prior to 1997 are not strictly comparable with data for later years due to the 1997 questionnaire redesign.
Estimates are age-adjusted to the year 2000 standard population using five age groups: 18-24 years, 25-34 years, 35-44 years, 45-64 years, and 65 years and over. For age groups where smoking is 0% or 100%, the age-adjustment procedure was modified to substitute the percentage smoking from the previous 3-year period.
Starting with 1993 data, current cigarette smokers were defined as ever smoking 100 cigarettes in their lifetime and smoking now every day or some days. Includes all other races not shown separately, unknown education level, and unknown disability measure.
Values not included in the pdf version of the report were taken from the Health, United States, trend tables.
