January 12, 2009 Articles for deletion Kept

merge proposal[edit]

The parent article is in need of globalization, the articles on China and Uruguay are stubs not likely to grow. Argentina and Japan are well-developed, but could use a paragraph and a link to the parent article. Chris (クリス • フィッチュ) (talk) 16:51, 15 September 2009 (UTC)

"stubs not likely to grow"? wrong. Keep separate articles, with cross-linking. (talk) 05:27, 27 November 2009 (UTC)

"Roughly half of which live in Asia"[edit]

I removed this because, although it is a direct quotation from the source, it is misleading. The population of Asia constitutes roughly half of that of the world and deserves no special mention here. A break-down of smoking by all continents may be suitable instead. —Preceding unsigned comment added by JohnKoziar (talkcontribs) 00:36, 28 July 2010 (UTC)

incorrect sorting[edit]

When I am trying to sort the table by male rate it shows: Indonesia 65.9 Ethiopia 7.6 Russia 70.1 (talk) 07:25, 8 May 2012 (UTC)

More updated data[edit]

For many countries the info could be updated to the year 2011 or 2012 from this WHO statistics report [1] (talk) 08:04, 5 June 2014 (UTC)

The 2008 data used in the table is old WHO data. I work in the field and know that for the UK there's been new data released this year (which I've added in the UK section). The data from this 2008 prevalence report looks weirdly high to me for 2008, is this just me or does anyone else agree?
