Awareness of the ‘Smokefree 2025’ goal: In Fact

28 Sep 2015

The Health Promotion Agency’s (HPA’s) Health and Lifestyles Survey (HLS) provides insight into New Zealanders’ tobacco-related behaviours and attitudes, including their awareness of the Government’s goal for reducing the smoking prevalence to less than 5% by 2025. In the 2012 HLS, 43% of respondents reported that they were aware of the national goal. The same question was repeated in 2014, and the findings are presented in this fact sheet.
