MMWR: Morbidity & Mortality Weekly Report;2/11/2011, Vol. 60 Issue 5, p138
The article discusses a report on the effects of tobacco-related public health efforts in Minnesota. The report was based on the surveillance data from the Minnesota Adult Tobacco Survey (MATS) and cigarette pack sales data. It revealed that adult smoking prevalence in Minnesota decreased to 16.1 percent in 2010. Such decrease is attributed to changes in smoking behavior. In addition, the report cited that the decrease in smoking prevalence and the number cigarettes smoked daily are associated with a decrease in cigarette sales.
