Quit Victoria put out a tweet the other day.
25% reduction in smoking rates? In Australia? How could the National Drug Strategy Household Survey get it so wrong?
Unlike Quit Victoria who report a 25% decline, the National Drug Strategy Household Survey reported:
Smoking rates have been on a long-term downward trend since 1991, but the daily smoking rate did not significantly decline over the most recent 3 year period (was 12.8% in 2013 and 12.2% in 2016).
