California, Florida and New York numbers are pretty impressive !
Asians are the least smokers of every race, it's really good for their health !

I've always thought more whites and asians smoked than blacks. Almost all the international asians at my college seem to smoke.

The chart is missing enough data to where there isn't much of anything you can take away from it, imo.

I don't think this is accurate. I was just talking to one of my Chinese classmates about how smoking is more of an issue in Asian countries. Like someone else said, there seem to be way more whites and asians at my school also who smoke

Why Asians would smoke so much ? They're healthy no ?
And you talk about students but students are always different of the rest of the population.
And foreign born asian students can be different of asian american students.

How can one make any deductions based on this chart, when the only two places that even kept records for Asians were Hawaii and Guam?

I wonder why my state (IN) has such a high rate of smoking for both black and whites?
