2021 CDC Survey Shows Teenage Smoking Is Almost Extinct


More than five months after releasing preliminary 2021 vaping numbers from the National Youth Tobacco Survey, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has finally followed up with the rest of the survey results.

The NYTS is an annual survey of middle- and high school students designed to assess current patterns of nicotine and tobacco use.

The CDC’s report shows that past-30 day middle- and high school cigarette smoking has fallen to just 1.5 percent—less than half the already record-low 3.3 percent reported in 2020. Just 1.9 percent of high schoolers reported smoking in the past 30 days, and less than 0.4 percent smoked on 20 or more of the past 30 days. That means only about one in 250 high school students smokes cigarettes daily or almost daily. Middle school past-30 day smoking fell to just 1.0 percent.

As the early results issued last fall indicated, school-age vaping has also fallen dramatically.
