Cigarette Consumption by Age

Among daily smokers, cigarette consumption appeared to be higher among older students in the grade 7-9 age group (in 2012-13), but similar across ages for youth aged 15-19 (in 2013) (Figure 8.11).

Among daily smokers aged 15-19, while average daily cigarette consumption decreased overall between 1999 and 2013, there has been considerable variation in this trend, including some periods of increase (Figure 8.12). Among smokers in grades 7-9, daily consumption has remained around 10 cigarettes (roughly between 9 and 11) since 1994.
