This chapter presents annual data for Greece on national sales of manufactured cigarettes for the years 1920–1995. These data are also presented on a per-adult basis. Use of other tobacco products is negligible. The transition from plain to filter cigarettes is documented. Survey-based data are presented on the sex- and age-specific prevalence of smoking and amount smoked from 1956. National data are shown when available, supplemented by relevant data from international, regional, and epidemiological studies. Surveys of adolescents and adults are included. Appropriate attention is given to the varying definitions and methodologies of the source material, while presenting data in a consistent format. Summary estimates for all adults are presented. Sources of data are fully cited.
