  1. Association between air pollution and mortality due to respiratory diseases in children in Sao Paulo, Brasil : a preliminary report.

    Article - En anglais

    This work presents the results of a time series study relating air pollution and respiratory mortality in children under 5 years of age in the metropolitan area of Sao Paulo, Brazil.

    Daily records of mortality (excluding neonatal mortality) for the period May 1990 to April 1991 were collected along with daily records of relative humidity, temperature, SO2, CO, particulates (PM10), O3, and NOx concentrations.

    Using multiple regression methods we demonstrated a significant association between mortality due to respiratory diseases and the NOx levels.
