    Introduction -- Choosing among evaluation studies for smoke-free policies -- Evaluating the impact of smoke-free policies: overview of available approaches -- Step-by-step guide to selecting appropriate evaluation studies for smoke-free policies

    "This publication is intended for use by Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) staff in providing technical assistance to state tobacco control programs on approaches to evaluating the effects of state policies and laws that restrict smoking in workplaces and public places. (These policies and laws are often referred to as "smoke-free" policies and laws.) Additionally, it is intended for use by state tobacco control program evaluation staff in conducting such evaluations, and for use by national tobacco control partner organizations and other public health professionals in responding to requests for technical assistance on this topic. This publication can also be used by state tobacco control program staff to help community tobacco control programs and coalitions assess the impact of local smoke-free laws. The evaluation approaches described in this publication and the findings of studies conducted using these approaches may also be useful to other stakeholders who are interested in the effects of smoke-free laws, including business organizations (e.g., chambers of commerce, restaurant associations) and labor unions. This publication is based on the science reviewed in the 2006 U.S. Surgeon General's Report, on more recent published studies, and on the experiences of U.S. states and other countries that have implemented and evaluated smoke-free laws." - p. 5
