232014

What is this indicator?

In 2011 Tahoe Forest Hospital District (TFHD) commissioned a Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (BRFSS) study among its adult community using the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) BRFSS tool. The BRFSS is a national initiative, headed by the CDC that assesses the health status and risk factors among U.S. citizens.

This indicator tracks respondents who have smoked at least 100 cigarettes in their lives who were asked, "Do you now smoke cigarettes every day, some days, or not at all?"

Story Behind the Curve

11.1% of TFHD adults reported smoking every day, compared with 29.8% of US adults.
