aData shown are for smoking-allowed areas only and combine both visits to each casino. All active-smoker proportions for smoking areas expressed as percentages (% Active Smokers). Main smoking area slot or table areas had low-stake games and occupied most of each casino’s gaming capacity (see Table  2).

bEntries with a dash (“-”) indicate that no separate game tables were present in the corresponding casino.

cThe second visit to Casino F is excluded from the data in this table. On the day of this visit, we noted that the patron occupancy was much higher than the first visit, resulting in an occupancy that was 3.6 times that on the first visit and a decrease in active smoker counts by 7%. All the per-visit data for Casino F, and all the other casinos, are presented in Table  3.
