Reported rates of smoking among adult females in West Central Scotland are high in a European context, especially when compared to Nord-Pas-de-Calais and the East German regions of Saxony and Saxony-Anhalt.  However, they do not differ substantially from levels reported in Merseyside and Northern Ireland.

Notes

The choice of cities is based on research to compare Glasgow and West Central Scotland to other post-regions of Europe.  Reports from this work are available here.

If you require the most up-to-date data available, please check the sources directly as new data may have been published since these pages were last updated. 

West Central Scotland (WCS) includes the following local authorities: Glasgow City, East Ayrshire, North Ayrshire and South Ayrshire, East Renfrewshire, Renfrewshire and Inverclyde, North Lanarkshire and South Lanarkshire, East Dunbartonshire and West Dunbartonshire.

95% confidence intervals have been used: in repeated samples, the proportions reported would lie between the upper and lower limits shown here 19 times of 20.
