ASSAD Tobacco use, current smoker, by sex


    Smoked tobacco on at least 1 day in the last week, ACT Secondary Students aged 12-17 years, by sex, 1996-2017


    The prevalence of tobacco use in ACT secondary students has decreased steadily over time. In 2017, 3.0% of secondary students surveyed reported smoking cigarettes on at least one day in the seven days before the survey ('current smokers'). Females (3.9%) were no more likely than males (2.2%) to be a current smoker. 

    Please note that this indicator was updated in 2022 and replaces all previous versions. 

    The following estimates have a relative standard error between 25% and 50% and should be used with caution:

    2017 persons
    2017 males
    2014 and 2017 females

    For the purpose of reporting the Australian Secondary Students' Alcohol and Drug survey data on HealthStats, if the 95% confidence intervals of the estimates do not overlap, they are considered to be significantly different.
