Abstract: This paper estimates the effects of higher cigarette prices and smoke‐free policies on the prevalence of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS). Using a panel of developed countries over a 20 year period, we find that higher cigarette prices are associated with reductions in the prevalence of SIDS. However, we find no evidence that smoke‐free policies are associated with declines in SIDS.
