Wisconsin health officials say smoking by middle and high school students has dropped to an all-time low.
The 2012 Wisconsin Youth Tobacco Survey, released Monday, found that 13% of high schoolers say they smoke and 2.5% of middle schoolers admit to smoking. The last study in 2010 showed nearly 18% of high schoolers and nearly 4% of middle schoolers smoked.
The survey is done by the Wisconsin Department of Health Services and the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction.
The 2012 figures contrast sharply with 2000, when 33% of high school students and 12% of middle school students said they smoked.
The Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids says the dramatic decline means nearly 200,000 fewer Wisconsin kids will grow up to be adult smokers.
