In 2015, about 49 million (one in five) U.S. adults used tobacco products every day or some days. Cigarettes were the most commonly used product. About 9.5 million adults used two or more tobacco products.
About one in five U.S. adults used some form of tobacco product in 2015, according to data published by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) Center for Tobacco Products.
