Executive Summary

Latvia is one of the three Baltic states, along with Estonia and Lithuania, that has a slightly larger population of two million people compared to its Baltic neighbors. The country has a large cigarette smoking population with 33% of over 18's smoking as of 2014. There is a large gender difference among smokers in Latvia as smoking is traditionally perceived as a male activity, which shows why 52% of men smoke whilst only 17.6% of women smoke. The country has a large problem with contraband, which accounted for 26% of the market as of 2015, due to high domestic prices and a porous border with Russia and Belarus.
