Lunchtime Trivia Tuesday, January 2

Q: According to Stats Canada 2011 numbers, 20% or 1 in 5 Canadians had this in common. What is it?

A: They smoke.

  • In 2011, one in five, or about 5.8 million Canadians smoked–more males (22.3%) than females (17.5%).
  • Fewer people are heavy smokers today compared to a decade ago–and more males (23.5%) than females (14.2%) are heavy smokers.
  • The smoking rate fell more rapidly among teens (15 to 19 years) than any other age group.
  • One in ten 15 to 17 year olds (about 121,000) smoked in 2011.  They were three times more likely to smoke in homes where someone smoked regularly (22.4% versus 7.0%).
  • Smoking has a substantial impact on health and life expectancy—smokers could lose about 9 years of life expectancy.
