 Canadian Tobacco, Alcohol and Drugs Survey, 2015. See data table with 95% confidence intervals below.For each tobacco product shown in Figure 4.3, prevalence of use was significantly higher among males than females.33-37 For example, in 2015, while nearly 3% of males had smoked a cigarillo in the last 30 days, less than 1% of females had done so (Figure 4.3).

Over time, the use of cigars/cigarillos has changed in parallel for both males and females; sex differences have persisted over time (Figure 4.4).
