Abstract OBJECTIVES: This study assessed cigarette consumption and its main determinants in rural China. METHODS: A logistic regression model was used to analyze status of smoking, daily amount of smoking, and expense of cigarettes in rural China. RESULTS: Approximately 57.1\% of the males and 3.1\% of the females were current smokers. The daily amount of smoking among smokers was 15.23 cigarettes, and their annual expenses were 227 yuan. CONCLUSIONS: People in rural China consume fewer cigarettes and are less likely to smoke than those in urban areas. Education and occupation are 2 major factors that determine the likelihood of smoking in rural China.
