Smoking / Income

This may help. 2009, but interesting

I don't know if your link was intended to help me or LM. Or help me explain it to LM.

Certainly more low income people smoke than high income. I don't disagree with that statement at all. As I said, different income brackets have different trends of stupid purchases they can't afford. Among my age bracket it seems to be bigger houses, new cars every couple of years, and new clothes every few weeks.

But "more smoke than don't" can't be true, unless more than 50% smoke. And in none of the brackets, even the lowest, is that the case.
