Component Score

Nigeria scores in the mid-range in tax structure, but scores poorly in cigarette price, affordability change, and tax share. Improvements can be made by increasing cigarette prices, reducing cigarette affordability, increasing tax share of price, and improving the tax structure.

Scores Over Time
