Smoking in Niue
There has been a downwards trend in current smoking prevalence in the general population in Niue according to WHO estimates. Smoking prevalence was just over 23% overall in 2000 and declined 11.5% in 2015, where it is projected to remain by 2025. For men the prevalence decreased from 34% in 2000 to 20% in 2015, with a further decrease to 14% projected by 2025. Women’s prevalence was 18% in 2000; this decreased to around 11% in 2015, and is projected to decrease slightly to around 8% by 2025. The WHO published prevalence trend estimates in tobacco smoking, as shown here, in their 2018 2nd edition report, which show slightly different smoking prevalence to the WHO country profiles. Data for the estimates are not age standardised, and were obtained from WHO databases. The trend lines are projections, not predictions, of future attainment. A projection indicates a likely endpoint if the country maintains its tobacco control efforts at the same level that it has implemented them to date. Therefore the impact of recent interventions could alter the expected endpoint shown in the projection. While the methods of estimation used in the first and second editions of the WHO report are the same, the volume of data available for the second edition is larger i.e. 200 more national surveys. The results presented are therefore more robust.
