National and State Trends in Cigarette & E-Cigarette Sales
The Centers for Disease Control's (CDC) Office on Smoking and Health (OSH) released an article March 9th in the American Journal of Preventive Medicine entitled “National and State Trends in Sales of Cigarettes and E-Cigarettes, U.S., 2011 – 2015.”Authors examined retail scanner data from convenience and grocery stores; mass merchandisers like Walmart; drug, dollar, and club stores; and military commissaries and found that during 2011—2015, cigarette sales decreased slightly and e-cigarette sales increased significantly. However, in 2015, convenience store sales of conventional cigarettes increased for the first time in a decade and continue to outweigh sales of e-cigarettes in traditional outlets. The article provides state-level data on changes in unit sales of cigarettes and e-cigarettes, by product type, that occurred during 2014-2015.
