 $125.80In 2015, smoking prevalence in Manitoba was 14.8%, somewhat above the national average of 13.0%.

Figure 2.12 (below) shows smoking prevalence, overall and by sex, in Manitoba from 1999-2015. Over this time, prevalence decreased overall, but there was little decline through most of the 2000s. Prevalence was greater among males than females in most years, although similar in a few instances, and sex differences varied from year to year.

Cigarette consumption

Between 1999 and 2015, average daily cigarette consumption in Manitoba appeared to decrease slowly for the first decade; however, increases were observed for a few years after 2009, although consumption  once again decreased in the most recent wave (Figure 2.14). Male smokers consumed more cigarettes per day than female smokers in all years, although the magnitude of this difference varied by year and was very small in some cases.
