Quit success by age


See data table below with 95% confidence intervals.In 2017, smoking abstinence rates among those who attempted to quit in the past 12 months did not differ significantly by age group75 although they appeared to be somewhat higher among those aged 25-44 (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.
