Initiation and Addiction: An Analysis of Adolescent Smoking Behavior (pp. 253-280) $100.00
Authors:  (Mir M. Ali)
Abstract:
A primary policy concern in advocating cigarette prices (tax) as a mechanism to reduce adolescent smoking is whether it will prevent them from becoming smokers as adults. By using data from the National Longitudinal Study of Adolescent Health to estimate a longitudinal model of cigarette smoking we find that although taxes may exert short-run influences in terms of delaying initiation, such an effect will diminish as the transition into adulthood is made. However, the influence that peers and family exert on individuals during adolescence remains until adulthood. Additionally, we find that state policies that are designed to restrict adolescent access to cigarettes and discourage its consumption exert an influence that persists until adulthood.
