This chapter presents annual data for the USSR and some constituent/successor republics on national sales of cigarettes for the years 1960–1995. Both Russian-style papyrosi and western-style cigarettes are considered. These data are also presented on a per-adult basis. The transition from plain to filter cigarettes is documented. Data for other types of tobacco are available only for Latvia. Survey-based data are presented on the sex- and age-specific prevalence of smoking from 1960, and on amount smoked from 1973. Data representative of individual republics 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.

Keywords:   USSR, successor republics, Latvia, tobacco, prevalence, consumption, plain cigarettes, filter cigarettes, adults, adolescents
