Tobacco - Youth Information
During 2019-2020, current use of any tobacco product, any combustible tobacco product, multiple tobacco products, e-cigarettes, cigars, and smokeless tobacco among middle and high school students decreased. These declines resulted in an estimated 1.73 million fewer current youth tobacco product users in 2020 (4.47 million) compared to 2019 (6.20 million)5
While statistics show teen tobacco use has declined, it is still an area of concern in our community.
Each day in the U.S., about 1,600 youth smoke their first cigarette and nearly 200 youth start smoking every day.5
