Hyland is associated with the Department of Cancer Prevention and Population Sciences at Roswell Park Cancer Institute (RPCI) in Buffalo, N.Y., and two co-authors are also Roswell affiliates.

Hyland and his co-authors assessed changes in taxable sales and employment in restaurants and hotels in five locations in New York state that have implemented smoke-free dining regulations since 1995. They evaluated data from jurisdictions that represent 63 percent of the state's population: Erie, Monroe, Suffolk and Westchester counties and New York City's five boroughs, which the researchers treated as a single jurisdiction.
