TOBACCO USE IN CANADA: 2015 EDITION
Tobacco use continues to be a leading preventable cause of death, with a substantial social and economic impact on the Canadian population. This document pulls together existing data to create a “big picture” overview of tobacco use patterns and trends in Canada, with the aim of enabling those responsible for tobacco control policies, programs, advocacy, research, evaluation and surveillance to assess progress and to update action plans, based on the best possible evidence about tobacco use in our country.
This report uses data from national surveys conducted by Health Canada and Statistics Canada (CTUMS and YSS), primarily between 1999 and 2013, with a focus on the current year.
Over 100 figures and tables summarizing trends in tobacco use in Canada are included in the report, and can be downloaded individually. In addition, data tables for each figure are available for download, including confidence intervals for estimates, in order to enable the extraction of more precise numbers.
