Journal Article Cost of Cigarette Smoking Attributable Productivity Losses, U.S., 2018

CDC’s Office on Smoking and Health released the article in the American Journal of Preventive Medicine Published July 28, 2022.

Information on morbidity-related productivity losses attributable to cigarette smoking, an important component of the economic burden of cigarette smoking, is limited. This study fills this gap by estimating these costs in the U.S. and by state.

Estimated total cost of morbidity-related productivity losses attributable to cigarette smoking in the U.S. in 2018 was $184.9 billion. State-level total costs ranged from $291 million to $16.9 billion, with a median cost of $2.7 billion.

The cost of morbidity-related productivity losses attributable to cigarette smoking in the U.S. and in each state was substantial in 2018 and varied across the states. These estimates can guide public health policymakers and practitioners in planning and evaluating interventions designed to alleviate the burden of cigarette smoking at the state and national levels.
