Within each spreadsheet, there are separate tabs along the bottom of the spreadsheet for each topic. Simply click on the topic tab of interest and you will see tables for the selected topic including (where possible):

  1. unadjusted prevalence by age group and gender
  2. unadjusted prevalence by ethnic group and gender
  3. age-standardised prevalence by ethnic group and gender
  4. age-standardised rate ratio of prevalence by ethnic group and gender
  5. age-standardised prevalence by NZDep2006 quintile and gender

Within each topic there may be several indicators in each table, for example, in the Quitting attempts spreadsheet, on the Quit attempts tab, there are ten indicators in each of the five tables including: tried to quit smoking in the past five years, quit smoking for at least 24 hours in the past 12 months and quit smoking for at least a week in the past 12 months.

To decide which spreadsheet to find the indicator you are interested in, please refer to the Indicator of Contents file in the right-hand download column.

Within the knowledge and attitudes spreadsheets results are also presented on separate tabs by smoking status (current-smoker, non-smoker, ex-smoker).

There are also separate Excel spreadsheets for each section which present age standardised ethnic group by gender estimates with a distinct comparison group, that is, Māori/non-Māori, Pacific/non-Pacific, and Asian/non-Asian. These spreadsheets follow the same format as above, with separate tabs for each topic within the spreadsheet.

Where possible results have been presented for Māori by gender, age group and NZDep2006 quintile. These can be found in the Māori-specific spreadsheets.

Appropriate comparable results have been presented from the 2006/07 New Zealand Health Survey, as well as the 2006 New Zealand Tobacco Use Survey, these can be found in the timeseries spreadsheets.

Data presented in the online tables have been analysed according to the protocols and procedures detailed in the Methodology Report for the 2008 New Zealand Tobacco Use Survey.
