  • Broader implementation of known effective strategies to reduce tobacco use would contribute substantially to reducing tobacco-related health disparities. Implementation of a strong set of tobacco control policies, including significant price increases, could prevent as many as 850,000 smoking-attributable deaths in the lowest income group and 675,000 deaths in the second-lowest income group by 2064. https://go.usa.gov/xR675
  • Progress in reducing tobacco use in the U.S. has been uneven. Substantially higher rates of tobacco use persist among population groups defined by race/ethnicity, occupation, socioeconomic status, sexual orientation, and other factors. https://go.usa.gov/xR675
