State-Specific Prevalence of Current Cigarette Smoking Among Adults and Secondhand Smoke Rules and Policies in Homes and Workplaces --- United States, 2005       Archived


Smoking can cause premature death and disease in children and adults who do not smoke but are exposed to secondhand smoke. To assess the state-specific prevalence of current smoking among adults in the United States and the proportions of adults who report having smoke-free home rules and smoke-free policies in their workplace, CDC analyzed data from the 2005 Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System. This report summarizes the results of that analysis, which indicated a threefold difference (from lowest to highest) in self-reported cigarette smoking prevalence among 50 states, the District of Columbia, and two U.S. territories. Created: 10/27/2006 by MMWR. Date Released: 12/1/2006. Series Name: A Minute of Health with CDC.
