  1. Air pollution and school absenteeism among children in Mexico City.

    Article - En anglais

    To determine the acute effects of ozone exposure, the authors conducted a short follow-up study of respiratory illness in a population of 111 preschool children frequently exposed to ozone levels that regularly exceed 0.120 parts per million (ppm).

    The children attended a private kindergarten in the southwestern part of Mexico City.

    Parents completed a questionnaire on demographic data, medical history, and potential sources of indoor air pollution.

    To determine the relation of ozone and respiratory-related school absenteeism, the authors used a logistic regression model for longitudinal data.
