Special Eurobarometer 458: Attitudes of Europeans towards tobacco and electronic cigarettes

Description

The European Commission has published on the eve of World No Tobacco Day a Eurobarometer survey presenting European citizens' attitudes to a range of tobacco-related issues. The general aim of the survey is to assess the prevalence and pattern of tobacco and electronic cigarette use, exposure to smoke in public places, to explore the motivations for smoking, and to help identify measures to reduce the number of smokers in the EU. The recent results are compared to the previous surveys, showing stable use of e-cigarettes (2%) and no decrease in the overall smoking rate in the EU (26%) since 2014. Amongst people aged 15 to 24 the rate has increased from 25% in 2014 to 29% in 2017.

The results by volumes are distributed as follows:
  • Volume A: Countries
  • Volume AA: Groups of countries
  • Volume A' (AP): Trends
  • Volume AA' (AAP): Trends of groups of countries
  • Volume B: EU/socio-demographics
  • Volume C: Country/socio-demographics
