Smoking among young teens nearly stubbed out - survey

4 April 2019

Smoking among young teen students appears close to being stubbed out, a new survey suggests.



New research announced by Associate Health Minister Jenny Salesa MP today indicated that, for the first time, fewer than two per cent of Kiwi teens aged 14 to 15 now smoked daily.

Analysis for this survey was provided by our biostatistician, Varsha Parag.
