Note: This data has been randomly rounded to protect confidentiality. Individual figures may not add up to totals, and values for the same data may vary in text, tables, and graphs. The accuracy of percentages may be affected by this rounding, particularly for ethnic groups with small populations.

4 September 2014: We have removed two bullet points on age and sex of cigarette smokers. The data in the bullet points could have been confusing or been misinterpreted if compared with the graph in this section. The update to this page may mean that numbers have changed because random rounding has been reapplied.
