Quitter percentage by sex

 Canadian Tobacco, Alcohol and Drugs Survey, 2013. See data table with 95% confidence intervals below.In 2013, males and females had similar quitter percentages,47 at 64.4% and 63.2%, respectively. However, a greater percentage of males had ever smoked,48 and were current smokers49 (Figure 6.2).

Since 1999, similar patterns have been observed; while male smoking rates (both current and ever) were higher, similar percentages of both male and female ever-smokers had quit (Figure 6.3; Figure 6.4). 

Quitter percentages among both males and females rose steadily between 1999 and 2005, after which point they changed very little, although the most recent year may signal a slight increase (Figure 6.3; Figure 6.4).
