    Fulltext.

    Objectives

    The purpose of this study was to extend an earlier evaluation of the economic effects of ordinances requiring smoke-free restaurants and bars.

    Methods

    Sales tax data for 15 cities with smoke-free restaurant ordinances, 5 cities and 2 counties with smoke-free bar ordinances, and matched comparison locations were analyzed by multiple regression, including time and a dummy variable for the ordinance.

    Results

    Ordinances had no significant effect on the fraction of total retail sales that went to eating and drinking places or on the ratio between sales in communities with ordinances and sales in comparison communities.

    Ordinances requiring smoke-free bars had no significant effects on the fraction of revenues going to eating and drinking places that serve all types of liquor.

    Conclusions

    Smoke-free ordi-nances do not adversely affect either restaurant or bar sales.
