The smoking population of countries

In almost all countries men smoke more than women.

This visual depicts the share of men versus the share of women aged 15 years and older who smoke any form of tobacco, including cigarettes, cigars, pipes, or any other smoked tobacco products for the year 2020.

Smoking is included both on a daily and non-daily basis as well as on an occasional basis.

The countries selected correspond to the world's 50 most populous countries and to the only two countries, Nauru and Iceland, where women smoke more than men.
