  1. Air pollution and daily mortality in residential areas of Beijing, China.

    Article - En anglais

    The relationship between air pollution and daily mortality in 1989 was examined in two residential areas in Beijing, China.

    Very high concentrations of sulfur dioxide (SO2) (mean=102 mug/m3, maximum=630 mug/m3) and total suspended particulates (TSPs) (mean=375 mug/m3, maximum=1 003 mug/m3) were observed in these areas.

    Daily counts of deaths were regressed, using Poisson regression on the logarithm of (SO2) and/or TSPs controlling for effects of temperature, humidity, and day of week.

    A highly significant association was found between In (SO2) and daily mortality.

    The risk of total mortality was estimated to increase by 11% (95% confidence interval [95% CI]=5% - 16%) with each doubling in SO2 concentration.
