Revision of Select Tables from Analysis of Chemicals Found in Cigarette Smoke in a Special Sample of U.S. Adults, NHANES 2011-2016

CDC has revised select tables from the Analysis of Chemicals Found in Cigarette Smoke in a Special Sample of U.S. Adults, NHANES 2011-2016 section of the National Report on Human Exposure to Environmental Chemicals.

The revised tables correct a statistical software programming error affecting estimates for National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES) cycles 2013-2014 and 2015-2016. The previous version of the statistical software code omitted 18- and 19-year-olds from two strata: “total population” and “age 18-49 years.”

Tables for the following chemicals were revised:
