Project Main Description

This project will estimate the social and economic costs related to tobacco use in NSW for 2014. Mortality and morbidity costs attributable to smoking will be estimated as will lost productivity, costs due to fires and the intangible costs due to mortality attributable to smoking. Also included are expenditures on services and programs to prevent or stop smoking and taxation revenues. Using these data, a model will be developed to explore the impact on social costs as the prevalence of smoking changes.
