Description

Using data from the Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System, the research showed that the prevalence of smoking between 1994-1996 and 2000-2001 did not change substantially for the United States as a whole. The prevalence of smoking for rural residents decreased by more than 2 percent in six states (CA, CT, MD, NC, TN, UT). However, it increased by 2 percent or more in ten states.
