Economic Impact of Smokefree

Restaurant Ordinances

Northern Arizona University (Flagstaff, AZ, 1996)

“Prohibiting smoking in Flagstaff restaurants has not been bad for business.”

Health Economics Research, Inc. (Brookline, MA, 1995)

“Brookline’s smoke-free bylaw did not have a significant, immediate effect on the city’s restaurant patronage.”

Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (West Lake Hills, TX, 1995)

“[T]he total sales of the restaurants did not decrease after implementation of the ordinance.”

University of California, San Francisco (30 cities in CA and CO, 1994)

“Ordinances had no significant effect on the fraction of total retail sales that went to restaurants or on the ratio of restaurant sales in communities with ordinances compared with those in the matched control communities.”

Claremont Institute for Economic Policy Studies (106 cities in CA, 1994)

“[O]rdinances had no systematic impact on restaurant revenues... Surrounding cities without ordinance restrictions exhibited patterns of effects that were indistinguishable from those of ordinance cities.”
