Students were asked to report their use of e-cigarettes with and without nicotine separately; these measures were combined into ‘any’ e-cigarette use for other analyses in this section, but Figure 12.6 shows the separate measures for use of e-cigarettes with and without nicotine.

In 2018-19, prevalence of reporting using e-cigarettes with and without nicotine were similar, for ever use (15.3% vs 18.2%, respectively), past 30-day use (8.6% vs 8.0%) and daily/almost daily use (2.5% vs 1.5%).
