Indoor tanning rates have dropped among adults in the United States between 2010 and 2013, according to recently published study results.
Researchers analyzed National Health Interview Survey data from 2010 and 2013, which is a nationally representative sample of the U.S. population aged 18 years and older (n=59,145). Response rates were 60.8% in 2010 and 61.2% in 2013. Using an indoor tanning device at least once during the 12 months prior to the survey was used to define “indoor tanning.”
