The effect of cigarette advertising bans on consumption.

Because previous research and reviews on the effect of cigarette advertising bans on cigarette consumption have reported mixed results, the effectiveness of cigarette advertising bans has been a point of controversy. To ascertain the efficacy of cigarette advertising bans, the current research is a quantitative integration (meta-analysis) of the entire available published cigarette advertising ban research conducted to determine what impact, if any, advertising bans have on cigarette smoking behavior. Results of the meta-analysis show that cigarette advertising bans do not have a significant effect on cigarette consumption.
