Smokeless Tobacco Use by Industry and Occupation

Current smokeless tobacco use: Estimated prevalence by current occupation, U.S. working adults aged 18 and over, 2010
Table showing Current smokeless tobacco use: Estimated prevalence by current occupation, U.S. working adults aged 18 and over, 2010

† Estimates with a relative standard error of greater than 50% are suppressed.
– Estimated confidence intervals not calculated because estimated prevalence of smokeless tobacco use among workers in this occupation is zero.
a Estimates with a relative standard error of more than 30% but less than or equal to 50% are statistically unstable due to small sample size and should be used with caution as they do not meet the standards of reliability.

Note:  Numbers presented are annual estimates for 2010. Prevalence estimates are weighted and are not age-adjusted. Smokeless tobacco users are those who ever used snuff or chewed tobacco in their lifetime and are currently using snuff or chewing tobacco at the time of the survey interview. Working adults are those who were employed in the week prior to the survey. Estimated populations represent current U.S. workers aged 18 years and over by occupation.
