  1. The association of air pollution and mortality : examining the case for inference.

    Article - En anglais

    An association between air pollution measured as particulate matter, and mortality has been reported in several different locations.

    These studies have been conducted over a wide range of climates and populations.

    The time-series studies, which examine the joint occurrence of daily fluctuations in air pollution and mortality, provide the strongest evidence of a true association.

    However, several criteria, including the consistency of the results, need to be explored before causality is inferred from these studies.

    A striking consistency in the results was observed, after the different studies were converted into a common metric.

    The mean effect of an 10 mug/m3 change in PM10 implied by these studies varies between 0.64 and 1.49%.
