    Urban residents tend to be the least likely to smoke, and urban areas tend to be the areas where smoking in public is most frowned upon.  Probably a good bet that the many of the people you're seeing are smokers, just not on the city streets.  And more likely yet that if you took a business trip to smaller cities and towns, you'd see a lot more smokers.  I live in metropolitan Des Moines and still see smokers every single day.

      in the course of work. I know if folks smoke at home, and in my experience, it's a rare practice.

      Might be, as you point out, it's rarer in a large metropolitan area than it would be in rural parts of the state.
