This searchable database houses secondary literature synthesizing the evidence supporting federal, state, and local U.S. tobacco controls. State-level statistical data or fact sheets are not included, nor are resources that focus on programs rather than policies. In addition to aggregating the body of tobacco control policy and advocacy resources, this tool can help identify resource overlaps and gaps. This bank is not intended to be exhaustive; to further explore topics, users may visit the websites of authoring organizations.
