Overall tobacco use prevalent among middle, high school students

November 18, 2014

Despite significant progress in decreasing tobacco use among adolescents, overall tobacco use remains high, as 1 in 5 high school students and 1 in 20 high school students currently use tobacco, according to an MMWR report.

René A. Arrazola, MPH, of the CDC, and colleagues assessed data from the 2013 National Youth Tobacco Survey to determine the prevalence of tobacco use among US middle and high school students. Surveyed students were asked if they ever (at least once) or currently (at least once in the past 30 days) use cigarettes, cigars, hookahs, smokeless tobacco, electronic cigarettes, pipes, snus, bidis, kreteks and dissolvable tobacco.
