Abstract

A study using manufacturing data showed that sales of sugar-sweetened beverages in Mexico fell 7.3 percent on average two years after the tax was implemented, compared to the period 2007–13. 1 These results align with those in our article (Mar 2017), which estimated changes in beverage purchases in a representative sample of urban households, and illustrate the robustness of our findings.
