Objective: To assess the effectiveness of community interventions for reducing the prevalence of smoking.

Conclusion: The failure of the largest and best conducted studies to detect an effect on prevalence of smoking is disappointing. A community approach will remain an important part of health promotion activities, but designers of future programmes will need to take account of this limited effect in determining the scale of projects and the resources devoted to them.
