Augmentation récente du tabagisme en France : principaux résultats du Baromètre santé, France, 2010

Abstract : Every five years, the Health Barometer from the National Institute for Prevention and Health Education (INPES) measures epidemiological monitoring indicators in the general population. These random surveys are conducted through phone interviews based on a representative sample of the 15-75 year old population living in France. The last survey, conducted in 2010 with more than 27,000 interviewees, shows a recent increase in smoking in France, whereas it had been decreasing for more than 20 years. However, the whole set of the results shows very different trends. The proportion of smokers smoking more than 10 cigarettes a day is decreasing, but the proportion of daily smokers is higher than in 2005 especially in women aged 45 to 65. The increase in these women is due both to the fact that women of that generation have been the first women really concerned by smoking, and that they are fewer to quit than their elders. Moreover, the French tobacco control policy has been more focused on passive smoking, compared to the 2000-2005 period, when prices strongly increased. However, the smoking ban in public places, and particularly in workplaces (2007) might have contributed to the decrease of the number of cigarettes smoked per day.
