ABSTRACT

Objective: To estimate changes in sales of sugar sweetened beverages (SSB) and plain water after a 1 peso per liter excise SSB tax was implemented in Mexico in January 2014.

Material and methods: We used sales data from the Monthly Surveys of the Manufacturing Industry from January 2007 to December 2015. We estimated Ordinary Least Squares models to assess changes in per capita sales of SSB and plain water adjusting for seasonality and the global indicator of economic activity.

Results: We found a decrease of 7.3% in per capita sales of SSB and an increase of 5.2% of per capita sales of plain water in 2014–2015 compared to the pre-tax period (2007–2013).

Conclusions: Adjusting for variables that change over time and that are associated with the demand for SSB, we found the tax was associated with a reduction in per capita sales of SSB. The effectiveness of the tax should be evaluated in the medium and long term.

Mentions: Fig 1 shows trends in annual sales of SSB and plain water in liters per capita from 2007 to 2015. The graph shows an increasing trend in SSB sales from 2007 to 2011 followed by a slight decline that became steeper in 2014. Plain water shows an increasing trend since 2007 that accelerated since 2014.
