Smoking prevalence in the United Kingdom fell from 19.8% in 2012 to 18.7% in 2013 and was substantially lower among women than men, the latest survey by the Office for National Statistics has shown.
The Integrated Household Survey,1 which surveyed over 260 000 adults, found that 16.5% of women and 21.1% of men smoked. Men were more likely to be current smokers than women across every age group.
