World map of countries by number of cigarettes smoked per adult per year

This is a list of countries by annual per capita consumption of tobacco cigarettes.

Cigarettes are smoked by over 1.1 billion people. While smoking rates have leveled off or declined in developed nations, in developing nations tobacco consumption continues to rise at a rate of around 3.4% per annum.[citation needed]

Smoking rates in the United States have dropped by half from 1965 to 2006 falling from 42% to 20.8% of adults,[1] with further significant decline to 18 percent by 2012.[2] There are large regional differences in smoking rates, with Kentucky, West Virginia, Oklahoma and Mississippi topping the list, and Idaho, California and Utah at significantly lower rates.[3]

In Australia the incidence of smoking is in decline, with figures from 2011–13 showing 16.1% of the population (over 18) to be daily smokers, a decline from 22.4% in 2001. Young adults are the most likely age group to smoke, with a marked decline in smoking rates with increasing age. The prevalence of smoking is strongly associated with socioeconomic disadvantage [low earners], with over double the rate in the most disadvantaged quintile of the population as compared to the least.
