This systematic review looks at the evidence on the effectiveness of a sugar-sweetened beverage tax in middle-income countries.
This systematic review aims to review the literature for studies conducted in high-income countries that examined the effect on an increase in the price of sugar-sweetened beverages on purchase or consumption and/or weight outcomes based on socio-economic status indicators.
This systematic review includes 78 studies which have consistent evidence showing that taxes and subsidies influence dietary behaviours.
This systematic review looks at the effect of the tax on four key factors: (i) effect on consumption, (ii) effect on consumption and body weight, (iii) effect on food consumption and health and (iv) effect on body weight.
This comprehensive literature review suggests that an increase in price of sugar-sweetened beverages is associated with a decrease in consumption; and the higher the price increase, the greater the reduction in consumption.
This systematic review was undertaken to synthesise the results of original studies examining the possible impact of tax policies and price increases upon the consumption of sugar-sweetened beverages and high-in-fat, salt and sugar foods.
This study aims to provide a systematic review of recent studies from the United States on the price elasticity of demand for sugar-sweetened beverages, fast food, and fruits and vegetables.
This systematic review aims to provide insights into how these taxes can be designed to (i) reduce consumption of targeted products and related health harms and (ii) generate revenues and distribute the tax burden across income groups in an efficient and equitable manner.
The goal of this systematic review is to provide a comprehensive summary of research on food demand and consumption behaviour in the United States over the past seven decades.
This systematic review includes 43 papers and aims to reduce confusion and inform policymaking by consolidating recent evidence and explaining the differences in methodologies used.
This systematic review aimed to ‘evaluate the impact of sugar-sweetened beverage (SSB) taxes on overweight and obesity prevalence in countries of different income classifications.
The review conducted as part of the STOP project investigated the cost and cost-effectiveness, equity, and acceptability of SSB taxation to add to the growing evidence on the effectiveness of taxing sugary drinks.
