Objective (s): To determine prevalence of tobacco consumption among Iranians.
Methods: This was a nationwide cross sectional study. A random sample of individuals aged between 18 and 65 years were entered into the study. Prevalence of tobacco consumption was measured asking each respondent to indicate whether they consume tobacco products (cigarette, hookak and pipe) or not, and if yes how much?
Results:  In all 27,883 individuals looks part in the study. The mean age of the respondents was 32.7 years (SD=11.8). 74.6% of the respondents indicated that they were not smokers and among the smokers, 10.4% smoke 1-5 cigarettes daily, 8.5% smoke 6-10, 4.6% smoke 11-20 and 1.5% smoke more than 20 cigarettes per day. Logistic regression analysis showed that age, education, gender, occupation and marital status had significant relationship with smoking.
Conclusion: The findings suggest that one out of four individuals consume tobacco to some extent. The need for interventions to reduce smoking among Iranian adult population seems necessary.
