This article describes smoking intensity among Indigenous Australians (15 years and older) between 1994 and 2008. Changes in smoking intensity in this period were determined through analysis of data from the National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander survey, 1994 and the National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander social survey, 2008. Results indicate a decrease in the number of Indigenous people smoking more than 20 cigarettes per day (CPD), and an increase in the number of Indigenous people smoking 1-10 CPD.
