Cigarette smoking is the leading cause of preventable disease, disability and death in the United States. Tracking statewide smoking rates is one of the population health measures required as part of the SIM Test grant. The plan for improving population health utilizes and builds upon the DPH’s recent State Health Assessment, State Health Improvement Plan (Healthy Connecticut 2020) and the state Chronic Disease Prevention Plan.
The Dashboard uses the Connecticut School Health Survey data and defines high school youth smoking as students who reported they smoked cigarettes once or more in the past 30 days.
