Description: The study examined the characteristics of current e-cigarette use among 14,531 US high school and middle school students in 2020. Among 19.6% of high school students and 4.7% of middle school students who currently used e-cigarettes in 2020, 38.9% of high school users and 20.0% of middle school users self-reported use on 20 to 30 days during the past 30 days, and most reported flavored e-cigarette use. The results demonstrate that although current e-cigarette use among youth significantly decreased between 2019 and 2020, use prevalence, frequent use, and flavored e-cigarette use remained high.
