The prevalence of past month use of any tobacco products among adolescents (youths aged 12 to 17) declines between 2002 and 2008, from 15.2 to 11.4 percent. The decline in past month tobacco use can be attributed primarily to a decline in past month cigarette use- the most frequently used tobacco product- with 13.0 percent of adolescents using cigarettes in 2002 compared with 9.1 percent in 2008.
