WHO analysis: Only 19.4% of males will smoke by 2025


The percentage of males who smoke tobacco occasionally or daily in the United States, which was estimated at 34.2 in the year 2000, will drop to 19.4 by 2025, according to a report by the World Health Organization (WHO).

WHO defines those who smoke occasionally or daily as "current smoking."  Its global study on the prevalence of tobacco smoking was released last year.

The report charts current and daily tobacco smoking in WHO member countries and also examines smoking trends based on age.

A total of 25.4 percent of men in the United States in 2000 were daily tobacco smokers, according to the report. That percentage is expected to drop to 13.9 by 2025.
