The article reports that the latest figures from the Regional Longitudinal Health Survey show that smoking rates among First Nations people in Canada are dropping. Statistics from the 2002-03 survey put the rate of smoking among First Nations people age 20 and over at 57.6 per cent, down 4.4 per cent from survey figures for 1997 and 1991 when the rate was at 62 per cent. Smokers make up only 26 percent of the general Canadian population, but Jane Grey, national coordinator of the survey is encouraged by the decreased rate of Aboriginal smoking.
