The population for Asian American, Native Hawaiian and other Pacific Island groups living in Washington State is very diverse. The data from the 2013 Census of WA State reflects that 52.7% live in King (15.55%), Snohomish (9.58%), Whitman (7.60%), Pierce (7.28%), Thurston (6.48%), Kitsap (5.57%) and Clark counties (4.76%).
Disaggregated data is important and necessary in addressing tobacco prevention and control issues in the AANHPI community. The Center for Disease Control (CDC) reports that Asian Americans have a smoking prevalence rate of 10.9% and 28.1% among Native Hawaiians and other Pacific Islanders, masking disparities by heritage (Cambodian men have a smoking prevalence rate of 58%).
Smoking prevalence data of AANHPI subgroups are available below.
