American Lung Association State of Tobacco Control 2013. Please visit the source here
Data is for the year 2013. The smoke free air laws grading system is based on criteria developed by an advisory committee convened by the National Cancer Institute. The grade provides an overview of state protection from toxic tobacco smoke scoring in nine categories: Government Workplaces, Private Workplaces, Schools, Child Care Facilities, Restaurants, Retail Stores, Recreational/Cultural Facilities, Penalties and Enforcement. The smoke free air grade for each state is based on a total of all points received in all categories. States receiving scores in the top 10 percent of the range (90 to 100 percent) earned an A. Those receiving scores falling between 80 and 89 percent got a grade of B, between 70 and 79 percent a C and between 60 and 69 percent a D. Those that fell below 60 percent received an F.
