Countries are at different stages in the tobacco epidemic.



Almost 1 billion men in the world smoke: about 35% of men in high resource countries, and 50% of men in developing countries. About 250 million women in the world are daily smokers: 22% of women in high resource countries and 9% of women in developing countries. These differences indicate that different countries are at different stages in the tobacco epidemic. Cigarettes account for the largest share of manufactured tobacco products in the world - 96 percent of total sales. Except for chewing tobacco in India and smoking of kreteks in Indonesia, cigarettes are the most common method of consuming tobacco throughout the world.
