The SAE method is then use to assess the associations between current cigarette smoking, individual and neighborhood characteristics. A current cigarette smoker was defined as someone who has smoked at least 100 cigarettes in his or her lifetime and who currently smokes (Hill, Amos, Clifford & Platt, 2014). Individual demographics includes age, sex, race or ethnicity and household income. Neighborhood characteristics were selected from variable representing population composition, citizenship, language proficiency, income, educational attainment and housing occupancy (USCB, 2017). The findings show that Compton smoking population is about 15.9% and the city rank 104 where 1 is the low and 127 as being the highest prevalence city in Los
