|標題:||The cross-effects of cigarette and betel nut consumption in Taiwan: have tax increases made a difference?|
|期刊/報告no：:||Health Policy and Planning, Volume 26, Issue 3, Page(s) 266-273.|
|摘要:||This paper empirically identifies cross-price elasticities of betel nut and cigarette consumption in Taiwan based on the Central Bureau of Statistics demand model. It compares reduction of cigarette consumption as a result of the proposed Betel Nut Health Tax with reduction of betel nut consumption as a result of the Tobacco Health and Welfare Taxes levied in 2002 and 2006, in order to determine which tax is most effective. Results from a simulated comparative analysis indicate that the Betel Nut Health Tax reduces cigarette consumption to a much greater extent than the Tobacco Health and Welfare Taxes reduce betel nut consumption.|
