Document title: An atlas of tobacco smoking in Scotland: A report presenting estimated smoking prevalence and smoking attributable deaths within Scotland
Description: The atlas and its supporting appendices present estimates of current smoking prevalence in Scotland at a variety of geographical levels. Smoking prevalence estimates are provided for NHS boards, councils, community health partnerships (CHPs) and Scottish parliamentary constituencies and also for intermediate zones and postcode sectors. The estimates were produced by Professor Graham Moon and colleagues at Portsmouth University by applying a multilevel synthetic estimation procedure to data from the 2003/04 Scottish Household Survey and the 2001 census. In addition to the smoking prevalence estimates, the atlas also includes estimates of smoking-attributable deaths for individual NHS boards and CHPs in order to illustrate the burden of smoking-related harm within Scotland. The atlas will be a valuable resource when used in conjunction with local knowledge, to support smoking cessation and prevention activities within NHS boards, CHPs and councils across Scotland.
