Other tobacco use by sex

 Prevalence of use in the past 30 days for various tobacco products, by sex, 2013.* Cigar and chewing tobacco/snuff data for females not reportable due to low numbers in the numerator and/or denominator. Data source: Canadian Tobacco, Alcohol and Drugs Survey, 2013. See data table with 95% confidence intervals below.For most tobacco products, prevalence of use was significantly higher among males than females.33-36 For example, in 2013, while nearly 5% of males had smoked a cigarillo in the last 30 days, just 0.6% of females had done so (Figure 4.3). 

Prevalence of waterpipe use, however, was the same for males and females.37 Over time, the use of cigars/cigarillos has changed in parallel for both males and females; gender differences have persisted over time (Figure 4.4).
