The scatter chart below shows the change in male and female tobacco smoking rates in different countries between 2000 and 2015. In addition, countries are color-coded by their income levels.
Almost all countries have seen female smoking rates drop – the Russian Federation and the Czech Republic are the two exceptions. Male smoking rates have also dropped in most countries. However, several African and Middle Eastern countries saw a rise. The shaded green area indicates the part of the chart where both female and male smoking rates dropped.
This chart was built using the Aploris add-in for PowerPoint on a Mac.
