Tobacco Product Use Among Military Veterans - United States, 2010-2015.

Abstract In 2015, an estimated 18.8 million U.S. adults were military veterans (1). Although the prevalence of tobacco-attributable conditions is high among veterans (2), there is a paucity of data on use of tobacco products, other than cigarettes, in this population. To monitor tobacco product use among veterans, CDC analyzed self-reported current (i.e., past 30-day) use of five tobacco product types (cigarettes, cigars [big cigars, cigarillos, or little cigars], roll-your-own tobacco, pipes, and smokeless tobacco [chewing tobacco, snuff, dip, or snus]) from the National Survey on Drug Use and Health (NSDUH). Overall, 29.2% of veterans reported current use of any of the assessed tobacco products. Cigarettes were the most commonly used tobacco product (21.6%), followed by cigars (6.2%), smokeless tobacco (5.2%), roll-your-own tobacco (3.0%), and pipes (1.5%); 7.0% of veterans currently used two or more tobacco products. Within subgroups of veterans, current use of any of the assessed tobacco products was higher among persons aged 18-25 years (56.8%), Hispanics (34.0%), persons with less than a high school diploma (37.9%), those with annual family income <$20,000 (44.3%), living in poverty (53.7%), reporting serious psychological distress (48.2%), and with no health insurance (60.1%). By age and sex subgroups, use of any of the assessed tobacco products was significantly higher among all veteran groups than their nonveteran counterparts, except males aged ≥50 years. Expanding the reach of evidence-based tobacco control interventions among veterans could reduce tobacco use prevalence in this population.

AB  - In 2015, an estimated 18.8 million U.S. adults were military veterans (1).
      Although the prevalence of tobacco-attributable conditions is high among veterans
      (2), there is a paucity of data on use of tobacco products, other than
      cigarettes, in this population. To monitor tobacco product use among veterans,
      CDC analyzed self-reported current (i.e., past 30-day) use of five tobacco
      product types (cigarettes, cigars [big cigars, cigarillos, or little cigars],
      roll-your-own tobacco, pipes, and smokeless tobacco [chewing tobacco, snuff, dip,
      or snus]) from the National Survey on Drug Use and Health (NSDUH). Overall, 29.2%
      of veterans reported current use of any of the assessed tobacco products.
      Cigarettes were the most commonly used tobacco product (21.6%), followed by
      cigars (6.2%), smokeless tobacco (5.2%), roll-your-own tobacco (3.0%), and pipes 
      (1.5%); 7.0% of veterans currently used two or more tobacco products. Within
      subgroups of veterans, current use of any of the assessed tobacco products was
      higher among persons aged 18-25 years (56.8%), Hispanics (34.0%), persons with
      less than a high school diploma (37.9%), those with annual family income &lt;$20,000
      (44.3%), living in poverty (53.7%), reporting serious psychological distress
      (48.2%), and with no health insurance (60.1%). By age and sex subgroups, use of
      any of the assessed tobacco products was significantly higher among all veteran
      groups than their nonveteran counterparts, except males aged &gt;/=50 years.
      Expanding the reach of evidence-based tobacco control interventions among
      veterans could reduce tobacco use prevalence in this population.
