World No Tobacco Day: The price of tobacco is linked to proportion of smokers

The cheaper the price of tobacco, the higher the percentage of people that smoke finds the latest Eurostat data.

The report looked at the price of a 20 pack of Marlboro cigarettes in every European country and cross-referenced these figures with the percentage of people who smoke in that country.

Turkey and Bulgaria, where tobacco is cheapest (under €3 per pack) to buy, are home to the highest proportion of smokers in Europe, with nearly 28% of the population smoking daily.
