The aim of this topic was to estimate the price elasticity of demand by income group (using Household Expenditure Survey data).
Using results from topics 2 and 3, authors simulated the impact of increase in tobacco excise and price on consumption and government budget.
The research was conducted with the aim of collecting data on the use of tobacco products. It is similar as GATS and provide the data about smoking prevalence by different socioeconomic groups.

The main goal of this research is to estimate the crowding out effect of tobacco consumption on other consumption items. Research is based on HBS data for Serbia for the years 2006–2017.
This research analyzes trends in cigarette affordability in ten selected SEE countries, including five Western Balkan countries (Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina (BiH), Montenegro, North Macedonia, and Serbia) and five EU members (Bulgaria, Croatia, Hungary, Romania and Slovenia) for the period 2008-2020.
The increase in excise is expected to improve health and avoid premature deaths while also adding revenues to the state budget
