CDC: White adults had highest e-cigarette use in 2014, 2018

White adults in the U.S. reported higher e-cigarette use than all other ethnicities in both 2014 and 2018, though e-cigarette use for all ethnicity groups jumped from 13 percent in 2014 to 15.7 percent in 2018, according to the CDC's Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report published Nov. 29.

Researchers analyzed National Health Interview Survey responses from a sample of U.S adults for the years 2014 and 2018. Estimates were age-adjusted to the nation's projected population in 2000.

For 2014 and 2018, non-Hispanic white adults were most likely to report ever using an e-cigarette. In 2018, 19.1 percent of non-Hispanic white adults had used an e-cigarette, compared to 10.2 percent of Hispanics, and 10.1 percent of Asians and black adults.
