Tobacco and Nicotine Database
Tobacco and Nicotine Database
The Tobacco and Nicotine Database is a collection of data from publicly available sources on the tobacco and nicotine industry. It is not specific to PMI. Rather, it gives an extensive global overview of the entire value chain across markets, from tobacco growing and initial processing, to manufacturing, retail trade, government revenues, illicit trade and the end consumer.
The database includes more than 130 variables across 191 countries. The range of variables extends from the number of tobacco farms to the value of manufactured cigarettes, the number of employees in retail, the volume of cigarette exports in tons, the number of current cigarette smokers, the government revenues from tobacco excise taxes, and the total tax per cigarette. For this third release of the database, we included nine years of data for each variable and country, from 2010 to 2018, to allow for comparisons over time. With each release, more recent estimates will be added.
We are confident of the value of this tool and encourage you to contact us at email@example.com should you have any information that you believe should be included, supplemented, or modified.
