The Tobacco Control Scale 2021


Friday, 02 December 2022

This report describes the results of a survey of tobacco control activity in 37 European countries in 2021, using the Tobacco Control Scale (TCS). 
The data used for the 2021 survey refers to legislation in force on the 1 January 2022, to 2020 data on prices of tobacco products, and to the tobacco control budget in 2020. Any legislation, price increases, or funding introduced or enforced after those dates are not included. 

The TCS quantifies the implementation of tobacco control policies at the country level, and is based on six policies described by the World Bank, as well as the recommendations from the WHO Framework Convention for Tobacco Control, according to which comprehensive tobacco control programmes should be prioritised.
