Smoking Prevalence

In 2013, smoking prevalence in Saskatchewan was 17.6%, above the national average of 14.6%.

Figure 2.9 (below) shows smoking prevalence, overall and by sex, in Saskatchewan from 1999-2013. Despite considerable year-to-year variation during this time, there appears to have been a net decrease in overall prevalence and a recent downward trend. Throughout this time period, prevalence was similar or slightly greater among males, except in 2013, when females' prevalence estimate was slightly higher.
