This FACT indicates the number of women who smoked during pregnancy per 100,000 persons in each Australian state.

Nationally, 10.4 percent of women smoked during pregnancy. The data presented here reflects numbers for 2015. The state/territory with the highest number per 100,000 persons is the Northern Territory at 370.58 women per 100,000 smoking during pregnancy.
