Data and Cost Calculators

ASH Ready Reckoner (Updated May 2024)

The ASH Ready Reckoner is an easy-to-use cost calculator, allowing you to see the costs of smoking to society. The tangible wider societal costs of smoking in England are £46.3 Bn and these are broken down into individual local authorities, combined authorities, regions, and Integrated Care Boards (ICBs). Estimates are also available for parliamentary constituencies and wards. Costs include productivity, healthcare, social care (local authority paid-for and value of informal care by family and friends and unmet need) and fire costs, but not taxes or social security which are national-level public finance impacts. For further information, read the Ready Reckoner methodology.
