Abstract: This paper studies the impact, on the sales of bars and restaurants, of the recent smokefree laws in the city of Buenos Aires and in three provinces of Argentina. Using a quasiexperimental design and a difference-in-difference estimation procedure we find that the smoke-free laws did not affected negatively the sales of bars and restaurants in the city of Buenos Aires and in the provinces of Córdoba, Santa Fe and Tucumán. Moreover, in the case of Buenos Aires the smoke-free legislation induced an increase in the sales of bars and restaurants of around seven percent.
