Methodology
QuoteWizard analyzed data from the CDC's Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System of e-cigarette users in all 50 states. We took the crude prevalence of current e-cigarette users in each state and ranked all 50 states from the highest crude prevalence to the lowest crude prevalence. States with the highest crude prevalence are considered to have the highest rate of e-cigarette users and are therefore most likely to be affected by e-cigarettes in terms of their health insurance premiums.
