The Impact of Public Smoking Bans on Smoking Behaviour: Evidence from an Australian Experiment

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

    Abstract

    This paper estimates the impact of public smoking bans on smoking behaviour, exploiting the progressive implementation of total smoking bans in enclosed public areas across Australian states/territories. We find that this smoke-free legislation has changed neither the incidence nor the intensity of smoking within the Australian population.
