    Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


    Estimates of the demand for cigarettes in Turkey uncovered significant effects from prices, incomes, education and health scares. The previous study did not pre-test for the presence of unit roots. This note reports the undertaking of this task, and the results of cointegrating regression analysis on previous data, which invalidates the earlier results.
