17 Indoor Tanning Data from the national YRBS and NHIS show that indoor tanning has decreased among high school students 19 (Figure 6) and adults 20 (Table 5). Decreases among high school students may be caused, in part, to increased state restrictions on the use of indoor tanning among minors. 21 Indoor tanning remains highest among women aged 18 to 29 years and non-Hispanic white individuals (Table 5).
