Cigarette and Tobacco Consumption: Have Anti-Smoking Policies Made a Difference?
AbstractThe consumption of cigarette and tobacco products in Australia is modelled using the rational addiction theory of Becker and Murphy. The model incorporates information on advertising by cigarette and tobacco producers and by anti-smoking organisations, measures of anti-smoking policies such as advertising prohibitions and workplace bans, and demographic factors. Our result show that the Becker-Murphy model works well.
