Estimating The Impact Of Regulation Banning Flavored Vaping And Smoking Products

Faculty Member: 

Proposal Description: This project uses data that we collected from smokers and vapers to estimate the impact of state regulations banning flavors in cigarettes and e-cigarettes. Outcomes are whether the bans reduce and/or changed the amount of smoking and vaping in those states in which bans were in force as compared to states without such bans. We use a difference -in -difference approach to estimate the impact.

Requisite Skills and Qualifications: Competence in R is required (desired). Also useful would be some ability to conduct literature reviews and editing skills.
