Objective.-The tobacco industry claims that tobacco makes a significant economic contribution to each of the states in the United States.
We sought to determine whether Michigan, a nontobacco state, would reap more economic benefits from the presence or absence of tobacco product sales.
Design.-Computer simulation of the Michigan economy, with and without tobacco product sales, for the years 1992 through 2005.
Intervention.-We simulated Michigan's economy with tobacco expenditures eliminated or reduced and the equivalent spending redistributed to other goods and services, according to consumers' normal spending patterns.
We compare these results with baseline forecasts of the economy.
Main Outcome Measures.-Numbers of jobs and tax revenues.
