CDC recently published Investment in Tobacco Control: State Highlights, 2001.1 The publication presents information for all 50 states and the District of Columbia on the prevalence of tobacco use, the health impact and costs associated with tobacco use, the amount of funding for tobacco control, and excise taxes on tobacco. States can use the information in the report in developing tobacco control programs.

Investment in Tobacco Control is the third state highlights report released by CDC's Office on Smoking and Health, National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion, and is the first to provide a compilation of states' investments in tobacco control. The report presents an analysis of investments in tobacco control, places these investments in the context of health and economic consequences of tobacco use specific to the state, and compares current investments with the funding ranges recommended in CDC's Best Practices for Comprehensive Tobacco Control Programs.2

The report shows that in fiscal year 2001, 45 states are investing $883.2 million in tobacco prevention and control programs, including 36 states investing $654.9 million from state settlements with the tobacco industry; eight states appropriating $218.4 million from tobacco excise tax revenues; and nine states appropriating $9.9 million from their general revenues. Other funding sources include $58.1 million awarded to the states by CDC and $9 million awarded by the American Legacy Foundation.

The report is available at http://www.cdc.gov/tobacco/statehi/pdf_2001/2001statehighlights.pdf, and print copies are available through CDC's Office on Smoking and Health, National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion, Mailstop K-50, 4770 Buford Highway, N.E., Atlanta, GA 30341; telephone (770) 488-5705. Up-to-date and historic data on the prevalence of tobacco use, tobacco control laws, the health impact and costs associated with tobacco use, and tobacco agriculture and manufacturing are available for all 50 states and the District of Columbia through CDC's State Tobacco Activities Tracking and Evaluation (STATE) System available at http://www2.cdc.gov/nccdphp/osh/state/.
