This dataset was from a research published in Population Health Metrics in March 2014, “Cigarette smoking prevalence in US counties: 1996-2012.”
This study was conducted to determine smoking prevalence and trends in the United States. Information on cigarette smoking and prevalence is not routinely available at the state level hence the need to gather information for public health action.
Data on 4.7 million adults age 18 and older from the Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (BRFSS) from 1996 to 2012 was used. Cigarette smoking status was derived from self-reported data in the BRFSS and small area estimation methods were applied to generate estimates of current total cigarette smoking prevalence and current daily cigarette smoking prevalence for 3,127 counties and county equivalents annually from 1996 to 2012. Bias was corrected using novel methods resulting from the exclusion of the wireless-only population in the BRFSS prior to 2011.
Results showed that total cigarette smoking prevalence varies dramatically between counties, even within states, ranging from 9.9% to 41.5% for males and from 5.8% to 40.8% for females in 2012. In conclusion, county-level estimates of cigarette smoking prevalence provide data to better develop and implement public health interventions to reduce the burden imposed by cigarette smoking.
