Cabo Verde scores lower than the average score of countries in its region, income group, and the global average, which suggests that it would greatly benefit from improving its cigarette tax system.

Scores Over Time
Cabo Verde's overall scores increased from 2014 to 2020 due to an increase in the price of cigarettes and an improvement in the excise tax structure.
