A Public Well-Being Effort Can Payoff
OBESITY AND SMOKING IN ATLANTA COSTS AND IMPLICATIONS
Assuming 4,041,882 adults and 2,778,900 workers, if Atlanta residents reduced their obesity
and smoking levels to reach the stated goals of the CDC, annual savings in health care across
the local economy would be $1.14 billion and savings to employers in reduced absenteeism
would be $1.47 billion.
