* Based on question: "Which statement best describes the rules about smoking in your home: No one is allowed to smoke anywhere, smoking is permitted in some places or at some times, or smoking is permitted anywhere." Percentages represent choice "no one is allowed to smoke anywhere."

† Assessed by asking: "Is smoking restricted in ANY WAY at your place of work?"; "Which of these best describes the smoking policy at your place of work for INDOOR PUBLIC OR COMMON AREAS, such as lobbies, rest rooms, and lunch rooms?"; and "Which of these best describes the smoking policy at your place of work for work areas" [with response categories: "Not allowed in any (public/work) areas/Allowed in some (public/work) areas/Allowed in all (public/work) areas"]. Percentages represent those reporting smoking is "not allowed in any publc area" and "not allowed in any work area" among indoor non-self employed workers (who do not work in a home environment, in several buildings, or in a motor vehicle).

‡ In the 2010-11 CPS, multiple races were allowed. Here "White" equals non-Hispanic, only White race reported; "Black" equals non-Hispanic, only Black race reported; "American Indian/Alaska Native" equals non-Hispanic, only American Indian/Alaska Native race reported; "Asian/Pacific Islander" equals non-Hispanic, only Asian/Native Hawaiian & Other Pacific Islander race reported; "2 or more races reported" equals non-Hispanic, 2 or more races reported. Note more than half of this last category is composed of non-Hispanic American Indian/Alaska Natives also reporting one or more other races. Also, non-Hispanic Asian/Native Hawaiian & Other Pacific Islanders reporting some other race(s) make up the next largest subcategory within this grouping (mainly the Native Hawaiian & Other Pacific Islanders).
