This data shows the percentage of people aged 18 and over who smoke in Buckinghamshire. There is also data for smoking rates in the South East and England.

Smoking is the most important cause of preventable ill health and premature mortality in the UK. Smoking is a major risk factor for many diseases, such as lung cancer, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and heart disease. It is also associated with cancers in other organs, including lip, mouth, throat, bladder, kidney, stomach, liver and cervix.

In 2021, one in ten adults (10.5%) aged over 18 years in Buckinghamshire are estimated to smoke (compared to South East 11.9% and England 13%). In previous years the trend has shown to be decreasing.  The 2020 year cannot be compared to previous years due to a change in methodology of data collection from face-to-face to telephone collection only.
