Figure. Trends in current cigarette, cigar, and adjusted cigar use among youth, Virginia, 2001-2009. An item assessing brand-specific cigar use was added to the Virginia Youth Tobacco Survey in 2007 and 2009. Adjusted cigar use is based on 2007 and 2009 data corrected for responses to brand-specific items versus general items. Tests for proportions were computed to determine differences between current and adjusted cigar use percentages.
