Public Health England (PHE) published the latest review of the evidence on e-cigarettes and vaping in England in March this year. The review provides a full analysis of trends in behaviours and attitudes relating to the use of nicotine vaping products among young people and adults. It found that prevalence of e-cigarette use has remained stable since the 2019 review.

This review can be found at the following link:

Data for 2020 will be published in early 2021 in PHE’s next e-cigarette evidence update.
