Assessing the implementation of tobacco-control laws

The Foundation's Tobacco Policy Research and Evaluation Program was designed to provide support for research and evaluation projects that will produce policy relevant information about ways to reduce tobacco use in the U.S., especially among children and youth.The purpose of this project is to examine the process by which smoking control laws and ordinances are implemented and enforced at the state and local levels, how they are diffused across communities, and the strategies needed to achieve the stated policy objectives. These findings would serve to educate anti-smoking advocates and policy makers about current levels of enforcement and about barriers to successful implementation of tobacco control initiatives.
