State-level prevalence of interest in quitting smoking, past-year quit attempts, recent smoking cessation, and receipt of a medical doctor’s advice to quit smoking, by quartile — Tobacco Use Supplement to the Current Population Survey, United States, 2014–2015. Panel A: Interested in quitting was defined as current smokers who reported from 2 to 10 on a 10-point scale ranging from 1 (not at all interested) to 10 (extremely interested) among all current smokers (unweighted n = 22,163). Panel B: Past-year quit attempts were defined as current smokers who reported that they had stopped smoking for at least 1 day or made a serious attempt to stop smoking even for <1 day within the past year and former smokers who quit within the past year among all current smokers and former smokers who quit within the past year (unweighted n = 25,850). Panel C: Recent smoking cessation was defined as quitting smoking within the past year for ≥6 months among current smokers who smoked for ≥2 years and former smokers who quit during the past year (unweighted n = 25,507). Panel D: Receipt of medical doctor’s advice to quit smoking was determined among current smokers who visited a medical doctor within the past year and among former smokers who visited a medical doctor within the year before quitting (unweighted n = 17,247).
