This dataset contains predicted 2017 smoking prevalence levels under unrealized tobacco control policy scenarios: 1) If WHO-attributed country achievement scores for select components of its MPOWER policy package (smoke-free (P), health warnings (W), and advertising (E)), and cigarette’s affordability (RIP) remained at the level they were at in 2008; 2) If the price of a cigarette pack was I$7.73 or higher; 3) If all countries had implemented each of the P, W, and E policies at the highest level; and 4) If countries had implemented both higher cigarette prices and P, W, and E policies at the highest level. Results were produced by sex and age group globally and for 155 countries. The dataset also includes data used to produce the counterfactual analysis, including GBD 2017 smoking prevalence estimates, different tobacco control policy indicators, cigarette prices and affordability, and more.
