In conclusion, data from Wave 1 of the PATH Study indicate that more than a quarter of adults 18 years of age or older were current users of at least one type of tobacco product in 2013 and 2014 and nearly 1 in 10 youths 12 to 17 years of age used a tobacco product in the previous 30 days, with cigarette use being most prevalent. Multiple-product use was common among tobacco users, with cigarettes plus e-cigarettes being the most common combination of tobacco products used. These foundational estimates of prevalence will serve as a baseline for this longitudinal cohort to address critical research questions such as those related to changes in the use of tobacco products, among existing users as well as those not currently using tobacco products. These data will help inform tobacco regulatory and control efforts aimed at protecting the health of the U.S. population.
