Eurobarometer Report - attitudes to Tobacco (including e-cigs)

What is this Report ?

Known as  SPECIAL EUROBAROMETER 385, this is a survery that was requested by the European Commission.

The aim of the survery is to identify 'Attitudes of Europeans towards Tobacco' and was carried out in Feb/March 2012 and published in May 2012.


Why is this important to us ?

The survey will contribute to the revised Tobacco Policy Directive.

It also contains a section about e-cigs, awareness of e-cigs and use of e-cigs within the EU.


What does it say about electronic cigarettes ?

More than 2/3rds have heard about e-cigs.

69% have heard of e-cigs.
In the UK - 64% have heard of e-cigs

The majority of people who have not heard of them are from the 'retired' population with almost 80% of people below the age of 55 having heard of e-cigs.

Do people think e-cigs are harmful ?

38% dont know
35% think they are not harmful
27% think they are harmful.

In the UK,

46% dont know
39% think they are not harmful
15% think they are harmful

Interestingly, ex-smokers and students aged 15-24 are amongst those most likely to think e-cigs are harmful.

Use of electronic cigarettes ?

In the EU, 1% use and e-cig regularly, 1% occasional use, 5% have tried it

In the UK,

1% use an e-cig regularly
2% use an e-cig occasionally
6% have tried an e-cig once or twice.

According the the Office for National Statistics, the population of the UK is currently 62.3 million.

This means that 623,000 people regularly use e-cigs in the UK (back in Feb/Mar 2012) - with growth levels factored in this figure will comfortably exceed 1,000,000 by Jan 2013.

Add to this the 1,246,000 people who occasionally use e-cigs in the UK, and we have a consumer product that is on the verge of becoming mainstream - especially when you consider that the official smoking rate is 21%
meaning that 15% of smokers regularly or occasionally use an e-cig.
(The current figure will be alot higher)

A useful source of data,

The full report can be downloaded here
the sections relating to electronic cigarettes are on pages 38-45

interesting stuff ... factor in the occasions too where governments are fined by their own courts and you have to wonder why the scaremongers promote fear.
