Figure 3: Year-wise proportion of female among total population and smoking prevalence among females over the time period of the study. The difference of proportion of females over first 5 years (2008–2012) compared to the next 5 years (2013–March 2018) was statistically significant (11.4% vs. 18.4%, P = 0.002); however, the smoking % in females over the two 5-year blocks was not significantly different (32.5% vs. 32.0%, P = 0.95)
