This chapter presents annual data for the United States of America on national sales of all types of tobacco products for the years 1920–1995 with some additional earlier data. Both manufactured and hand-rolled cigarettes are considered, as well as pipes and cigars, and smokeless tobacco products (snuff and chewing tobaccos). 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 from 1935, and on amount smoked from 1929. The data shown are mostly nationally based, supplemented by 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. Summary estimates for all adults are presented.
