Figure 2.12 (below) shows smoking prevalence, overall and by sex, in Manitoba from 1999-2013. Over this time, a net decrease in prevalence was observed, although there was little decline in the 2000s. Prevalence was greater among males than females in most years, although there was variation from year to year, and a few instances where they were similar.
