SILNE – Tackling socio-economic inequalities in smoking: learning from natural experiments by time trend analyses and cross-national comparisons

SILNE was launched in January 2012. The overall aim of the project is to analyse several “natural experiments” available within Europe in order to generate new empirical evidence to inform strategies to reduce socioeconomic inequalities in smoking.

The project will contribute with evidence on the differential health effects of policy interventions, and the impact of alternative options for enhancing equity. Because of its focus on smoking, the project is able to provide new evidence on the differential effect of tobacco control policies, thereby offering direct input to an important field of public health action.
