Cigarette Smoking Among Adults——United States, 2006

November 9, 2007 / Vol. 56 / No. 44

MMWR Introduction

According to the article, "Cigarette Smoking Among Adults—United States, 2006," approximately 20.8% of adults were current cigarette smokers. This estimate has not changed significantly since 2004, suggesting a stall in the previous 7-year (1997–2004) decline of cigarette smoking among adults. Additionally, even after being diagnosed with a smoking-related chronic disease, this group currently smokes at a rate higher than persons with other chronic diseases or persons with no chronic disease.
