This chapter presents annual data for New Zealand on national sales of all types of tobacco products for the years 1920–1995. Manufactured and hand-rolled cigarettes and pipe are considered, use of cigars and smokeless tobacco products being negligible. These data are also presented on a per-adult basis. The transition from plain to filter and to lower tar and nicotine cigarettes is documented. Survey-based data are presented on the sex- and age-specific prevalence of smoking and amount smoked from 1960. National data are shown when available, supplemented by relevant data from international, regional, and epidemiological studies. Surveys of adolescents and adults are included. Appropriate attention is given to the varying definitions and methodologies of the source material, while presenting data in a consistent format. Summary estimates for all adults are presented. Sources of data are fully cited.
