Summary
  • This report provides estimates on the costs of tobacco use to Australian society. It looks into the costs of premature mortality and wasted life years, stillbirths, hospitalisation and morbidity, primary care and patient medical costs, long term care and informal care, workplace absenteeism and presenteeism, expenditure on tobacco by dependent smokers, smoking cessation medications, fires and litter, and reduced quality of life. Revenue impacts are also considered, and the methodology used is also described in detail. The findings highlight the immense burden of smoking on individuals and society, despite its declining prevalence over recent decades. The estimated tangible cost of tobacco use to Australia in 2015/​16 is $19.2 billion, with estimated intangible costs of a further $117.7 billion. The greatest share of the costs of smoking are borne by smokers, former smokers and their families.
