dc.description.abstractThis paper estimates several econometric models of tobacco consumption, employing Irish annual time series data. The approaches examined include the recently developed rational addiction model and a two-component model that separates participation as a smoker from consumption by smokers. No evidence was found to favour the rational addiction model. The proportion of smokers seems unaffected by price or income, but shows a substantial downward trend related to health concerns. In contrast, consumption by smokers shows no such trend, but is affected by price with a relatively low price elasticity. The implications are discussed.en
