In March 2022, the first set of widely available PATH Study Data Tables and Figures were released, featuring a series of tables and figures that provide national estimates on tobacco use among youth (aged 12-17), young adults (aged 18-24) and adults (aged 25+) using data from Waves 1-5 (2013-2019) of the PATH Study. These tables and figures are available for public use at PATH Study Data Tables and Figures: Wave 1-5 (2013-2019). They can be easily accessed and are designed to be useful for a wide audience.
These data tables and figures present an easy and quick reference for percentage of people in each age group who use different tobacco products and flavored tobacco, as well as the percentage of people who start using tobacco products or quit smoking cigarettes. In keeping with the goals of the PATH Study, the tables and figures also provide estimates stratified by age, sex, race/ethnicity, and educational attainment to provide information on differences in tobacco use patterns across these demographic subgroups.
