  1. Impressive though many of these figures are, I didn’t spot the actually number or %age of smokers in the County.

  2. Thank you for your interest in this post.

    The percentage of adult smokers in the county is estimated to be 19.76% (this is where the one in five figure in our graphic came from), or approximately 83,000 adults. These figures are supplied by NHS Warwickshire.

    Hope this helps,

    Dave
