Title Market impact of the COVID-19 national cigarette sales ban in South Africa
Volume 11
Publication (Day/Month/Year) 2021
Tobacco sales were prohibited between 25 March and 17 August 2020 as part of the government’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic. A number of studies were conducted during the sales ban to investigate smokers’ responses to the sales ban. A drawback of these studies was that they were not nationally representative. The current study, as part of the NIDS-CRAM suite of surveys during the lockdown, aims to be broadly nationally representative, and as such provides an opportunity for a broadly representative ex-post investigation into smokers’ behaviour related to the national sales ban.
