Simpson SA, Nonnemaker JM. Int J Environ Res Public Health. 2013 Mar 13;10(3):1037-47.

This study developed a simulation model using 2005-2008 New York Adult Tobacco Survey data to estimate the effectiveness and net benefits of the New York Tobacco Control Program’s adult smoking cessation services, including media campaigns, telephone quitline counseling, and NRT. Results showed that in 2008, the New York program generated an estimated 49,195 additional non-relapsing adult quits for a net benefit of over $800 million. These benefits are large enough to fully offset expenditures not only for these programs specifically, but for the New York Tobacco Control Program as a whole.
