Quit success by age


 Canadian Tobacco, Alcohol and Drugs Survey, 2015. See data table with 95% confidence intervals below.In 2015, smoking abstinence rates among those who attempted to quit in the past 12 months did not differ significantly by age group62 although abstinence rates at the time of survey appeared to be somewhat lower among the older age group (Figure 6.22).

Over time, quit success within each age group has been highly variable, and no clear patterns by age have emerged (Figure 6.23). The large increases and decreases observed in some years may reflect high variability due to smaller sample sizes for this measure, rather than real trends.
