I'm not sure about world wide (I'm still looking) but I found this information about the US: Percentage of US population who smoke: 22% http://www.unitedhealthfoundation.org/shr2004/components/smoking.html That site even breaks down the population by state. Unfortunately, I can't find anything for India, percentage-wise. I'm going to keep looking (because this is an interesting topic!) and I'll let you know what I come across. :) ~Wyrdsister

I just found this bit of information: "Almost 182 million people in India smoke-representing 17 percent of all consumers worldwide (4)." Found here: http://www.globalink.org/39067 I know that doesn't answer your question quite yet, but we're getting closer. :) ~Wyrdsister
