Description

This chart shows the percentage of homes with at least one smoker at the initial visit and revisit, by county for the 2009-2014 funding cycle. The chart gives an indication of the ability of the HNP’s smoking intervention (referrals and education) to decrease the prevalence of smoking in the home. The initial visit percentages range across counties from about 8% to almost 60%. There was a substantial reduction in Albany County, but most counties are essentially unchanged which may indicate the difficulty in changing people’s smoking habits. Three counties show no homes with smokers at the revisit, but these are newly funded counties that have conducted very few revisits to date. Because revisits are a subset of the initial visits, closer examination of the dataset is necessary to confirm the number of initial visits and revisits that were conducted before drawing conclusions. Please read the overview document under the “About” tab for more information on the limitations.
