New Scorecard Report Rates Country Tax Policies Worldwide

Chaloupka F, Drope J, Siu E, et al. Tobacconomics cigarette tax scorecard. Chicago, IL: Health Policy Center, Institute for Health Research and Policy, University of Illinois Chicago, 2020. www.tobacconomics.orgNote: Only 4 countries are rated 4 or above on the tobacco tax scorecard (Ecuador, United Kingdom, Australia, New Zealand)

Thailand is rated < 2 as seen on page 11, which is consistent with the low average score for the South East Asia Region (SEAR), but below the average for its upper middle-income group status as assessed by the World Bank (See P. 12).
