According to figures released by the New York City government, smoking among New York City teenagers is on a decline, continuing a trend that began more than a decade ago ( The New York Times , January 2, 2008). According to the New York City Youth Risk Behavior Survey, the teenage smoking rate dropped to 8.5% in 2007 from about 17.6% in 2001 and 23% in 1997.
