Regular e-cigarette use remains low in young people and stable in adults, PHE report finds

Regular use of e-cigarettes remains low among young people, with just 1.7% of those aged 11–18 years in England reporting at least weekly use in 2018, according to a report commissioned by Public Health England (PHE).

In adults, vaping prevalence has remained stable since 2015 and is estimated to be highest in current smokers (14.9–18.5%) and ex-smokers (10.3–11.3%) with ‘quitting smoking’ being the main motivation for use.
