Data & Statistics About Tobacco in Michigan

Commercial tobacco use continues to be the largest contributor to preventable deaths in Michigan, despite a steady decline in usage since the new millennium.

With the availability and widespread popularity of electronic cigarettes and portable vaporizer devices increasing, it has become very important for public health professionals and policymakers to continue to work together to address this new form of tobacco-related product.

As we continually learn more about the dangerous health effects of tobacco and tobacco-related products, it is critical that public health professionals seek opportunities to educate the public, policymakers and stakeholders within the healthcare sector about these dangers.

Through education and outreach, the Michigan Tobacco Control Program continues to move closer towards a commercial tobacco-free state.
