Egypt: Global Adult Tobacco Survey

It is designed to produce internationally comparable data on tobacco use and tobacco control measures using a standardized questionnaire, sample design, data collection, aggregation and analysis procedures.

The Economics of Tobacco and Tobacco Taxation in Egypt

This report by the International Union Against Tuberculosis and Lung Disease describes the tobacco environment and current tobacco control policies in Egypt and presents evidence on the effects of prices on cigarette demand. Estimates based on cigarette demand in the 1990s and 2000s are used to project the impact of the recent cigarette tax increases on cigarette consumption, cigarette excise tax revenues, smoking prevalence and future deaths from smoking.
