The Effects of Tobacco Control Policies on Cigarette, Electronic Cigarette and Smoking Cessation Product Purchases among Adults: Evidence from Household Panel Data

We analyze the impact of cigarette excise taxes, smoke-free air laws, and smoke-free air laws which apply to electronic cigarettes on purchases of electronic cigarettes. Our data came from the Nielsen Household Consumer Panel (NHCP) between the years of 2011 and 2014, which contains detailed information about the products purchased by a panel of over 60,000 households. We are able to categorize the product type, nicotine content, and flavor of about 90 percent of electronic cigarette product purchases in the NHCP, and estimate the effects of these tobacco control policies on the number of electronic cigarette purchases, changes in the type of products purchased, and changes in the overall estimated nicotine consumption of electronic cigarette users and traditional cigarette users.
