A random sample of 246 people over 14, extracted from a sampling background numbering 14,200. Items related to tobacco addiction and included in the interview. 43.9% +/- 5 of our population smoked, consuming an average of 16.4 +/- 10 (mean +/- SD) cigarettes per day. The average starting age was 17.2 +/- 5.4, with males starting earlier. The highest percentage of smokers was found in the 30-39 age group, where female smokers exceeded female non-smokers. The typical smoker's profile is that of a married middle-aged man or woman, of average education and able to work. We obtained a section of the population at risk, clearly defined for health purposes.
