blacks & whites are about the same.  Native Americans smoke at a much higher clip and Asians much lower (particularly Asian women).  don't really recall about Hispanics, I think it's a few points lower than blacks/whites.

I think we're probably talking about the same stats, then.

It actually surprises me that Asian women smoke at such low rates.  I see a lot of young Asian women (college-aged) smoking in Seattle, I assume it's a weight control thing.  Not claiming that's a better sample, but I'm surprised

I never have seen two Asian women smoke together and I go to school at a very Asian university.  I've seen one hipster smoke with a diverse bunch.  I think Koreans especially have a large cultural gender divide between who smokes and who doesn't.

yeah the Chinese do also. In the PRC, almost all the men smoke and almost none of the women do. There's a huge imbalance in Taiwan and HK as well, though not as big as on the Mainland.
