WP6: Review and synthesis

  • Objectives:
  1. To review the published evidence on the effectiveness of tobacco control measures among adolescents and adults in lower as compared to higher socio-economic groups;
  2. To review the published evidence on the effects of educational policies or other policies on other “strategic drivers” (e.g. welfare policies) on smoking in lower and higher socio-economic groups;
  3. To assess the evidence generated by the empirical analyses in WP2 to 5, to prepare requests for additional analyses in these WPs, and to review the final evidence;
  4. To integrate all the available evidence and to establish an empirically tested basis for better understanding how to effectively address inequalities in smoking.
