This study examines the economics of tobacco production and demand in Egypt. It reviews previous studies of demand for cigarettes, consumption trends, and the data on tobacco-attributable diseases. It describes the structure and trends in cigarette production in egypt, and the level of imports and exports. Part 2 uses household expenditure survey data to look at trends in household expenditures on cigarettes and other tobacco products, by income level, education, rural/urban residence, work status and occupation. The results are comparable to similar empirical estimates from other countries. Finally, Egypt's tobacco control policies, activities and plans are described.
