This project contains two main components: 1) an analysis of the impact of the California Tobacco Control Program on population prevalence and per capita consumption; and 2) an estimation of the economic impact of changed smoking prevalence on smoking-attributable healthcare costs and mortality costs.  These two components will be combined to project the effects of changes in the level of funding of the California Tobacco Control Program on healthcare costs and mortality costs for the next five and ten years.
