    Fewer than 13 percent of Americans now smoke cigarettes every day. While this represents a dramatic decline from the Mad Men-era of ubiquitous ash trays, the drop in smokers isn't happening everywhere at the same rate, and it isn't necessarily happening among the people you'd expect. Slate decided to map the latest data about cigarette smoking by state and county, and the trends it reveals are fascinating. In most of the counties around the border of Kentucky and West Virginia, for example, as much as 40 percent of the population regularly lights up.

    This map shows data from both counties and states, using figures from an annual nationwide survey of more than 400,000 people. The state-by-state map also breaks out the numbers by age group, and by whether people smoke regularly or occasionally. Click the tabs in the upper right corner to toggle between the two different maps.

    I always thought that the rate of smoking is related to the economic status of the
    person-the lower the income level, the higher the smoking rate.

    That why Obama quit smoking when he became a millionaire? Is that why rich folk are known for their pricey humidors and cigar collections?

    He is still a smoker- but he should definitely quit so I can finally
    say something good about him :)

    I was really hoping that this was going to be a website that gave me the location of smokeasies in my area. Does anybody know where I can find that data?
