Quit success by sex

See data table below with 95% confidence intervals.In 2017, while the percentages of males and females who attempted to quit in the past 12 months and were abstinent at the time of the survey appeared to differ, this sex difference was not statistically significant74 (Figure 6.20). 

There is considerable variability in this measure due to smaller sample sizes among sub-groups.

Since 2004, success in remaining abstinent from smoking has fluctuated among both males and females, with no clear pattern emerging (Figure 6.21).
