New York hits new low for total number of cigarette smokers

Fewer New Yorkers are smoking.

This according to a new study that came out pointing to numbers of adults smoking in New York.


At this point just 12% of adults in the state smoke cigarettes, according to the data. The national average is a little over 15%.

The study shows that less than 6% of young adults between 18 and 24 admit to smoking.

Even with that progress though, more than 22,000 people die each year because of smoking.
