Smokeless Tobacco Use Among Working Adults — United States, 2005 and 2010



Smokeless tobacco causes cancers of the oral cavity, esophagus, and pancreas. The Center for Disease Control analyzed National Health Interview Survey data to estimate the proportion of U.S. working adults who used smokeless tobacco in 2005 and 2010, by industry and occupation. This report describes the results of that analysis, which showed no statistically significant change in the prevalence of smokeless tobacco use among workers from 2005 (2.7%) to 2010 (3.0%).
