    Questions:

    1 What is the purpose of this report?

    2 The authors note using a “difference-in-differences” approach to determine their primary outcome measures. What “big picture” difference were they measuring? Hint: Read beyond the abstract to locate this answer.

    3 Review the conclusions drawn by the authors. In 2-4 sentences, please share your overall impression of the effectiveness of the sugar-sweetened beverage tax in Philadelphia.

    4 This link (Links to an external site.) outlines items that are/are not included in the tax (under “Sweetened Beverages”). Do any of the products included or excluded in the tax surprise you? If so, which ones? If not, why not?
