Summary:Tobacco is a leading cause of preventable death in New Zealand. In 2009 the current smoking rate for Maori was 44 percent, still significantly higher than for non-Maori (18 percent) for both males and females. Maori in all age groups had higher smoking rates than non-Maori. Maori non-smokers were more likely than non-Maori to be exposed to second-hand smoke in their homes and cars. Maori were more likely to be asked by their health care worker about their smoking status, and to have been referred to quitting programmes or given quitting products by a health care worker in the past 12 months, compared with non-Maori. In 2009, 62.3 percent of Maori current or casual smokers had attempted to quit smoking in the past five years.
