Vaping statistics of high school students

Francis Phan made this Official Information request to Ministry of Education

This request has an unknown status. We're waiting for Francis Phan to read recent responses and update the status.

From: Francis Phan

Dear Ministry of Education,

I am writing to request information under the Official Information Act regarding:

1. The percentage of students in high school that vape.

If it is feasible, I am requesting this piece of statistics banded into schools of different deciles (i.e. the percentage of students that vape in Decile 10 schools, Decile 9 schools etc.)

2. The percentage of high school students who vape that are banded into different ethnicities (i.e. the percentage of Māori high school students who vape, and the percentage of Pakeha, Asian and Pasifika high school students who vape etc.)

If it is not possible to provide such data, I am instead requesting this information categorised into two groups of Māori and non-Māori students.

3. Ministry of Education's existing strategies into tacking vaping among high school students, if any. This includes official recommendation for the Government, if any, as well as resources and advice for schools/kura, students, parents and caregivers.

Yours faithfully,

Francis Phan

About the ASH Year 10 Snapshot
The ASH Year 10 Snapshot surveys 20,000-30,000 students every year on their smoking behaviour and attitudes – one of the largest youth smoking surveys in the world. It is a census style survey – all New Zealand public and private schools with Year 10 students are invited to participate each year. The Snapshot began in 1992 and has been running annually since 1999. (It was not able to be carried out in 2020 because of Covid-19.) The Sanapshot is funded by the Ministry of Health as part of the New Zealand Youth Tobacco Monitor.

You can find factsheets from the ASH Year 10 Snapshot for the last few years. If you are interested in using the data for research or study, or would like data prior to the years published here, please contact ashnz@ash.org.nz

Smoking and vaping behaviours among 14 and 15-year-olds - Health Promotion Agency
Vaping
We found that while the proportion of students who had tried e-cigarettes (vapes) increased
between 2016 and 2018, the proportion of students vaping daily (daily vaper) remained low.
In 2018:
 38% of students had tried vaping (ever vaper), up from 29% in 2016 and 20% in 2014.
 1.9% of students were daily vapers, compared to 0.7% in 2014.
 8% of students vaped at least monthly (current vapers), up from 3% in 2014. The
increase in current vapers was seen across most demographics.
 Māori were two times more likely to be current vapers than non-Māori.
 Students’ first vape most commonly came from social sources: current vapers were
most likely to get their first vape from a friend (53%) or another family member besides
their parents/caregivers (11%).
 The top reasons current vapers gave for vaping were they liked the flavours/taste and
they enjoyed vaping with their friends (both 59%).

Use of e-cigarettes and smoked tobacco in youth aged 14–15 years in New Zealand: findings from repeated cross-sectional studies (2014–19)

https://www.thelancet.com/journals/lanpu...(19)30241-5/fulltext

Between 2014 and 2019, there was a significant increase in the proportion of students who had ever tried e-cigarettes: from 20·8% (6337 of 30 444) to 37·3% (10 093 of 27 083; p<0·0001), and the proportion who had ever smoked cigarettes decreased significantly from 23·1% (7156 of 31 021) to 19·6% (5375 of 27 354; p<0·0001, table 1; figure). This pattern was the same irrespective of ethnicity, gender, and school decile (table 1). Between 2018 and 2019 (a period when access to nicotine e-cigarettes increased in New Zealand) the proportion of students who had ever tried e-cigarettes increased from 33·3% (9480 of 28 433) to 37·3% (10 093 of 27 083; p<0·0001), with significant increases noted for non-Māori non-Pacific students, male and female students, and students from mid-decile and high-decile schools (table 1). A small but significant increase in the proportion of students who had ever smoked a cigarette (even a puff) was also observed between 2018 and 2019: from 18·9% (5443 of 28 756) to 19·6% (5375 of 27 354; p=0·031), with significant increases noted for non-Māori non-Pacific students, and students from mid-decile and high-decile schools (table 1). In 2019, Māori students were almost three times more likely to have ever tried e-cigarettes or tobacco cigarettes, and Pacific students were almost 1·5 times more likely to have ever tried e-cigarettes or tobacco cigarettes than were non-Māori non-Pacific students (table 2). Students from low-decile and mid-decile schools were significantly more likely to have ever tried e-cigarettes or ever smoked cigarettes than were those from high-decile schools (table 2). Students who were gender diverse were three times more likely to have ever tried e-cigarettes or cigarettes than were female students, and male students were more likely to have ever tried an e-cigarette than were female students
