Research unit on the Economics of Excisable Products

The Research unit on the Economics of Excisable Products, formerly the Economics of Tobacco Control Project (ETCP) at the University of Cape Town undertakes research on alcohol, unhealthy food and tobacco policies to help limit their consumption and prevent non-communicable diseases. Among others, REEP manages the Data on Aliments Tobacco and Alcohol (DATA) in Africa Project which is funded by the International Development Research Centre (IDRC). The project seeks to collect, archive and disseminate alcohol, food- and tobacco-related time series and cross-sectional economic data. The aim is to provide a single point of access to relevant data for researchers interested in alcohol, food and tobacco policies in African countries. Other projects include tobacco use studies in South Africa and other countries.
