E-Cigarettes Reduce Adult Smoking

Economics 21, 5.29.18

Research is mixed on whether e-cigarettes can help smokers quit. That’s because researchers have largely ignored a possible cause-and-effect relationship between e-cigarette and cigarette smoking. But, taking causality into account, e-cig use increases the probability that a smoker will try to quit, and e-cigs may help people quit over time, according to a study from the National Bureau of Economic Research and The Graduate Center, City University of New York’s Michael Grossman,and Ph.D. candidate Daniel Dench.
