This study examined the prevalance rate of and characteristics associated with cigar use.
Data were derived from population-based telephone surveys of adults conducted in 22 North American communities in 1989 and 1993 as part of the National Cancer Institute's Community Intervention Trial for Smoking Cessation.
Averaged across the 22 communities, the prevalance rate of regular cigar use increased 133% from 1989 to 1993.
Regular cigar use increased in every gender, age, race, income, education, and smoking status category.
These results confirm other data indicating that cigar use is increasing.
