Abstract Background
In our present study, we report findings from the 6th annual survey of young people in Great Britain. Continued monitoring of e-cigarette use among young people is essential, as although use by never smokers remains low, this could change. Methods: Young people aged 11-18 years old in Great Britain were surveyed online by YouGov in March-April 2019. Use of e-cigarettes and perception of harm were assessed and compared in relation to smoking history, age and gender.
Results
Data from the 1st-5th annual waves indicate a slowing trend of e-cigarette uptake in current smokers, and that regular use or e-cigarettes may have plateaued and remains largely confined to current smokers. Results from the 6th wave (2019) are presented and discussed in the context of the previous waves.
Conclusion
Although experimentation has grown, regular use of e-cigarettes by never smokers remains low. External funding details Cancer Research UK, British Heart Foundation
