Tobacco Use Prevention

A state-level lawsuit against tobacco companies was settled in 1998. Since that time, tobacco
companies are required to pay millions of dollars annually to the state of North Carolina.
Do you favor or oppose using some of those settlement dollars for programs
to reduce tobacco use?

PLEASE NOTE: Due to changes in the weighting methodology and other factors, results from 2012 are NOT comparable to 2010
and earlier years.

***The estimate was suppressed because it did not meet statistical reliability standards. See BRFSS 2012 Annual Results Technical Notes for more details.

Percentages are weighted to population characteristics and therefore cannot be calculated exactly from the numbers in this table.
