Summary

Whilst awareness and use of e-cigarettes among young people has increased from 2013 – 2016, regular use, more than once a month, remains low at 1% in 2016.

Use by smoking status

Slide11

Slide12

Slide13

Summary

While current or regular use of e-cigarettes is rare, it is also almost entirely confined to those who have already tried smoking or are current smokers.

In 2016 regular use, more than once a week was reported at 13% among current smokers compared to 0% among never smokers.

While the graphs illustrate an increase in the number of never smokers who have tried an e-cigarette, from 18% in 2014 to 29% in 2016, it is important to remember in 2016 just 10% of young people had ever tried vaping.

Among both current and former e-cigarette users fruit flavours are the most popular, for example, among current users 36% report fruit as their preferred flavour in 2016.

However, vapers are using a wide range of flavours including tobacco.

Perceptions on harm

Slide19

Slide20

Summary

Overall it is encouraging that a clear majority of young people correctly identify vaping as less harmful than smoking.

However, what is concerning is the increase in the number of young people who believe that vaping is about as harmful as smoking – increasing by more than 10% between 2013 and 2016.

This

need to be monitored and it is important that young people are given accurate information about the relative risks of vaping and smoking.
