Tobacco Use Burden on Indiana 9,700 deaths/annually More than 1 in 4 adults smoke (22%-2013) For every death, two new youth start and 20 are living with a chronic disease $2.08 billion in annual health care costs $487 million in Medicaid costs Indiana taxpayers pay $566 per household to treat tobacco-related disease For every pack of cigarettes sold in Indiana, it spends $15.90 in health care costs related to tobacco
Smoking during pregnancy is associated with poor health outcomes Twenty to thirty percent (20-30%) of the cases of low birth weight babies can be attributed to smoking. Women who smoke during pregnancy have more than twice the risk of delivering a low birth weight baby. Babies of mothers who smoked during pregnancy have twice the risk of SIDS than infants of nonsmoking mothers. Women who smoke have a higher incidence of ectopic pregnancy. Pregnant smokers also have a 30-50% higher risk of miscarriage than nonsmokers.
