Every 5th adult in the world smokes tobacco. But there are large differences between men and women. Here is the data for men; here for women. In almost all countries it is true that more men smoke. In the visualization we see the share of men who smoke plotted on the y-axis compared with the same metric for women women plotted on the x-axis. The grey line in the plot represents equality in the prevalence: countries where smoking is more common in men will lie above this line; and countries where more women smoke lie below.
We see that almost all countries lie above the grey line, meaning a higher share of men smoke. In many countries — particularly across Asia and Africa — the differences are very large. We also see this when we look at a map of smoking among women across the world: across much of Africa and Asia, rates are very low.
You can find the world map of smoking rates in men here. The fact that men are more likely than women to smoke is reflected health statistics: particularly lung cancer, for which smoking is a primary risk factor. We see that in every country in the world, men are more likely to die from lung cancer. Click to open interactive version. Wordpress Edit. Our World in Data is free and accessible for everyone.
