† Based on the response of “yes” to the survey question “Have you ever used an e-cigarette even one time?” Data on e-cigarette use were first collected in the 2014 National Health Interview Survey.
§ Estimates are based on household interviews of a sample of the civilian, noninstitutionalized U.S. population and are derived from the National Health Interview Survey, Sample Adult component. The estimates are age-adjusted to the projected 2000 U.S. population as the standard population using five age groups: 18–24, 25–34, 35–44, 45–64, and ≥65 years.
From 2014 to 2018, the percentage of all U.S. adults aged ≥18 years who had ever used an e-cigarette increased from 13.0% to 15.7% overall and, by race/ethnicity, increased among non-Hispanic white, non-Hispanic black, non-Hispanic Asian, and Hispanic adults. Non-Hispanic white adults were the most likely, in both years, to have ever used an e-cigarette. In 2018, 19.1% of non-Hispanic white adults had ever used an e-cigarette, compared with 10.1% of non-Hispanic blacks and non-Hispanic Asians and 10.2% of Hispanics.
