This report compiles data from a variety of sources to provide information on smoking in England primarily, but also Scotland and Wales. Examples of sources include the General Household Survey, the Smoking, Drinking, and Drug Use Among Young People Survey, the Health Survey of England, Lifestyle Statistics, and Hospital Episode Statistics. Multiple tables cover subjects such as smoking among adults, smoking among children, behavior and attitudes to smoking, smoking-related ill health and mortality, and smoking-related costs. The majority of the data is from 2006 and 2007, though for comparative purposes dates of some data ranges from 1948 to 2008.
