By 2018, reduce the national smoking rate to ten per cent of the population and halve the Indigenous smoking rate.

NPA on Preventive Health

15(g): Reduction in state baseline for proportion of adults smoking daily commensurate with a two percentage point reduction in smoking from 2007 national baseline by 2011; 3.5 percentage point reduction from 2007 national baseline by 2013.
Further data development / collection required:Help on this termSpecification: Long-term
Mechanisms for reporting annually in between surveys are being explored. There is scope for improved capacity in jurisdictions depending on the implementation plan for the National Partnership Agreement on Preventive Health.
Other issues caveats:Help on this termQuality statements should note that data from non-private dwellings (e.g. hospitals, prisons, nursing homes) are excluded from household surveys.
Some disaggregations may be too small for publication.
