Abstract:
This case study examines the trend in people’s smoking habit. Because of anti-smoking activists and increasing health-consciousness, many countries increased their tax on cigarettes and few imposed ban on smoking. Some argue that these regulations reduce the number of smokers. However, few oppose this argument. The case ends with a question – observed decrease in proportion of smokers is significant or not.

Pedagogical Objectives:
