Trends in Cigarette Smoking Among High School Students—United States, 1991–2001

May 17, 2002 / Vol. 51 / No. 19


The May 17, 2002, issue of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report (MMWR) contains a report entitled, "Trends in Cigarette Smoking Among High School Students—United States, 1999–2001."

The report reveals that although more than one in four U.S. high school students still smoke cigarettes, rates among this group have been declining since 1997. These findings are from the Youth Risk Behavior Survey (YRBS), part of CDC’s Youth Risk Behavior Surveillance System, which is a school-based survey that collects data from students in grades 9–12 nationwide.
