This report identified tobacco-related disparities in Missouri through examining tobacco use, secondhand smoke exposure, and smoking cessation based on demographic, socioeconomic and personal characteristics. Findings from this report can be used to better understand differences in tobacco use among specific populations across the state. Addressing groups that are bearing a disproportionate burden from tobacco use will contribute to comprehensive tobacco control efforts, reducing overall tobacco use and making Missouri a healthier place to live.
