For those with less than $35,000 household income, one in five smoked cigarettes. High school graduates had a 17.6% smoking rate, compared to 3.5% for those who had a graduate degree. Over one in three (26.9%) of those with depression smoked cigarettes. The highest rate of adult smokers was ages 45 to 64, at almost 15%. Smoking rates were highest in the Midwest. About 480,000 deaths per year are attributed to smoking. The latest MMWR reports on tobacco, e-cigarettes and youth smoking can be accessed here.
