Bottom Line: Past 30-day e-cigarette use exceeded traditional cigarette use in 2014; 10.8% of high school and 4.0% of middle school students reported recent e-cigarette use, compared with 8.7% of high school and 2.9% of middle school students for traditional cigarettes (P<0.001).By 2014, 20.5% of high school and 8.5% of middle school students reported ever use of e-cigarettes.Among ever e-cigarette users in 2014, 30.3% of high school and 42.2% of middle school students had never smoked traditional cigarettes.

ABSTRACT
Recent youth trends in the prevalence of e-cigarette and traditional cigarette use in Florida were examined in a cross-sectional, representative state sample from 2011 to 2014. Traditional cigarette use among youth declined during the study period. Experimentation with and past 30-day use of e-cigarettes among Florida youth tripled over 4 years. Past 30-day e-cigarette use exceeded traditional cigarette use in 2014; 10.8% of high school and 4.0% of middle school students reported recent e-cigarette use, compared with 8.7% of high school and 2.9% of middle school students for traditional cigarettes (P<0.001). By 2014, 20.5% of high school and 8.5% of middle school students reported ever use of e-cigarettes. Among ever e-cigarette users in 2014, 30.3% of high school and 42.2% of middle school students had never smoked traditional cigarettes. Given the concern that significant rates of e-cigarette use by U.S. adolescents may have a negative effect on public health, further review of e-cigarette advertising, marketing, sales, and use among U.S. youth is warranted.

pone.0124385.g001: Ever electronic cigarette and traditional cigarette use among middle and high school students, by year—Florida Youth Tobacco Survey, 2011–2014.The largest increase in ever use of electronic cigarettes occurred between 2013 and 2014 for middle and high school students. MS = middle school. HS = high school.

Mentions: Traditional cigarette and e-cigarette use among youth from 2011 to 2014 is shown in Figs 1 and 2. Logistic regression models indicate that, among middle school students, ever e-cigarette use increased threefold over the 4-year period (OR = 2.96, P<0.001, Table 1), from 3.0% in 2011 to 8.5% in 2014 (Fig 1). Current use (past 30-day use) also significantly increased over 4 years, from 2011 (1.5%) to 2014 (4.0%) (Fig 2, Table 1). Both ever and current use of traditional cigarettes declined from 2011 to 2014 (Figs 1 and 2, Table 1).
