This report presents statistics and recent trends of tobacco use in Jersey in 2017.

This report is the latest in a series of reports which examines the effect of tobacco use on Islanders’ health. It presents a range of information on smoking among adults,  including prevalence, habits, attitudes, attempts to quit and the effect on health in terms of hospital admissions and deaths from smoking related illnesses. Information is also included on tobacco-related prices and expenditure. The report contains both previously published information and new analyses.

The latest report shows that in 2017 around one in six (16 per cent) of adults aged 16 and over were smokers; a significant decline of nine percentage points compared to 12 years previously, 2005, when 25 per cent were smokers. Since 2005, the largest decrease in the proportion smoking was in the youngest age group (16 to 34 years). Around one in six deaths of all adults aged 35 or over was estimated to be attributable to smoking.

A number of States of Jersey Departments have provided data for this report, including the Health and Social Services Department, and the States of Jersey Prison Service.
