Adult Cigarette and Tobacco Use Prevalence

This dataset contains two data files: 1) Adult cigarette use prevalence and 2) Adult tobacco use prevalence in California. Tobacco use includes cigarettes, cigars, little cigars or cigarillos, pipe tobacco, smokeless tobacco (e.g. chew, snuff, snus), hookah, or electronic smoking devices (e.g. e-cigarettes, vape pens, pod mods). See the individual file description for more information on each data file.

The California Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (BRFSS) is an on-going telephone survey of randomly selected adults, which collects information on a wide variety of health-related behaviors, including current cigarette and tobacco usage. Data are collected monthly from a random sample of the California population aged 18 years and older. The BRFSS has been conducted since 1984 by the California Department of Public Health in collaboration with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The data table provides adult tobacco use prevalence rates in California in which current tobacco use is based on current usage of cigarettes or having used cigars, little cigars or cigarillos, pipe tobacco, smokeless tobacco (e.g. chew, snuff, snus), hookah, or electronic smoking devices (e.g. e-cigarettes, vape pens, pod mods) in the past 30-days.
