Quitter percentage by sex

 Canadian Tobacco, Alcohol and Drugs Survey, 2015. See data table with 95% confidence intervals below.In 2015, quitter percentages among males (65.8%) and females(70.1%) did not differ significantly.47 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).

Among males, quitter percentage rose steadily until the mid-2000s, but then changed very little until again increasing the most recent few years (Figure 6.3). Quitter percentage among females appears to have risen fairly steadily since 1999 (Figure 6.4).
