• In Georgia in 2018, 17.5% of women of childbearing age (18-44 years) reported smoking, compared to 16.7% of women overall in the U.S. 
• Smoking is a major public health problem because not only can smoking harm a man's or woman's health, but smoking during pregnancy can lead to serious health problems in newborns (see the March of Dimes Fact Sheet on Smoking).
