Combustible tobacco products include cigarettes, regular cigars, cigarillos, or little filtered cigars, regular pipes, water pipes, or hookahs. For cigarettes, users were defined as persons who reported smoking either "every day" or "some days" and had smoked at least 100 cigarettes during their lifetime. This indicator uses age-adjustment groups: 18-24, 25-34, 35-44, 45-64, 65+.
In 2022, due to the 2019 NHIS redesign, the baseline was revised from 16.8% in 2018 to 17.0% in 2019.
The target remained 5.0% using the original target setting method of maintain consistency with national programs, regulations, policies, or laws.
