Tobacco use - never smoked

Chart

Fewer people are taking up smoking, and the proportion of people who have never smoked is increasing over time. In 2016, almost 66% of ACT residents aged 14 years and older reported that they have never smoked. This was the highest figure of all Australian jurisdictions and an increase on the 2010 figure of around 61%.
