Smoking Rates

New York Finger Lakes Region and Western New York

Despite the continued overall decline in the prevalence of smoking, there are still some populations with high rates. In particular, adult smoking rates are highly correlated with income, and 35 percent of the under $20K segment indicates that they smoke every day or some days. It’s also striking to see that over 40 percent of the Medicaid population are smokers.
