For years, health officials watched with satisfaction as rates of teen smoking in New York City plummeted, far outpacing the national average. In 2007, the rate dipped to 8.5%. Then it stopped falling.
Seth Bilazarian, MD's insight:

To be sure, the 8.5% is still a dramatic improvement from 15 years ago, when nearly a quarter of the city's high school-age students smoked, according to data from the Department of Health and Mental Hygiene.

The stagnation mirrors a national trend, experts said, though the city's numbers remain well below the national teen-smoking average of 18.1% and even the state average of 12.5%.
