  • Background Evidence suggests that air pollution exposure adversely affects pregnancy outcomes. Few studies have examined individual-level intraurban exposure contrasts. Objectives We evaluated the impacts of air pollution on small for gestational age (SGA) birth weight, low full-term birth weight (LBW), and preterm birth using spatiotemporal exposure metrics. Methods With linked administrative data, we identified 70,249 singleton births (1999–2002) with complete covariate data (sex, ethnicity… CONTINUE READING
