This report presents progress against the outcome indicators listed under part seven of the National tobacco strategy 2012-2018, and an additional six indicators agreed to during the development of the reporting framework.

The indicators are organised across five smoking phases: exposure; uptake; transition; established smoker and cessation. The report also collects data for smoking patterns across population groups, which includes Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.

The report aims to assist the Australian Government, states and territories in monitoring progress towards achieving the objectives and targets of the NTS and the National Healthcare Agreement (NHA) benchmarks.
