World Health Organization – WHO | 2018 | Idioma: Inglés
Quantifying the effects of exposure to air pollution in terms of public health has become a critical component in policy discussion. WHO/Europe’s software tool AirQ+ performs calculations that allow quantification of the health effects of exposure to air pollution, including estimates of the reduction in life expectancy.
AirQ+ estimates: 1. the effects of short-term changes in air pollution (based on risk estimates from time-series studies); 2. the effects of long-term exposures (using life-tables approach and based on risk estimates from cohort studies).
For each type of estimate, separate HELP files explain details of calculation.
