How does Serbia rank in regard to number of smokers?

A map published by World Population Review shows that Southeast Asia and the Balkan region have the highest number of smokers.

Serbia occupies the sixth position in the world. 40.6 percent of the Serbian population smokes, of which 40 percent are men and 41.2 percent are women.

Western European countries and North and South America tend to have lower smoking rates, however, this is not always true, as it turns out that Chile has one of the highest smoking rates in the world.

In many countries in South and Southeast Asia, smoking rates are very high for men and very low for women. In Indonesia, for example, the male smoking rate is 70.5 percent and the female smoking rate is 5.3 percent.

In general, smoking rates have decreased worldwide due to better education about the effects of tobacco and anti-smoking campaigns. In Great Britain, the smoking rate was 38 percent in 2000 and has since fallen to 19.2 percent.

Nauru has the highest smoking rate in the world, standing at 52.1 percent, followed by the state of Kiribati (52 percent). Other countries that are included in the top 10 are Tuvalu, Myanmar, Chile, Lebanon, Serbia, Bangladesh, Greece and Bulgaria.
