Particulate air pollution is becoming a serious public health concern in urban cities of China. Association of disability-adjusted life years (DALYs) and economic loss with air pollution-related health effects demand quantitative analysis for correctional measures in air quality. This study applies an epidemiology-based exposure–response function to obtain the quantitative estimate of health impact of particulate matter PM2.5 and PM10 across 190 cities of China during years 2014–2015. The… 
Health burdens of ambient PM2.5 pollution across Chinese cities during 2006-2015.
Estimation of Human Exposure and Environment Burden of Disease Caused by PM2.5 Pollution in Beijing, China
TLDR
The results showed that PM2.5 personal exposure in south-eastern Beijing is relatively large, and ischemic heart disease (IHD) which was responsible for the most premature deaths in 2016.
Spatiotemporal Assessment of PM2.5-Related Economic Losses from Health Impacts during 2014–2016 in China
TLDR
Overall, China experienced a downward trend in total economic losses over the three-year period, but the Beijing–Tianjin–Hebei, Shandong Peninsula, Yangtze River Delta, and Chengdu-Chongqing regions experienced greater annual economic losses.
Spatiotemporal assessment of health burden and economic losses attributable to short-term exposure to ground-level ozone during 2015–2018 in China
TLDR
Overall, the O3 attributed health and economic burden has begun to decline in China since 2017, however, highly polluted areas still face severe burden, and undeveloped areas suffer from high GDP losses.
Attributable Risk and Economic Cost of Cardiovascular Hospital Admissions Due to Ambient Particulate Matter in Wuhan, China
TLDR
The results showed that a 10 µg/m3 increase in PM2.5 and PM10 concentrations at lag7 day, respectively, contributed to a 1.01% (95% confidence interval: 0.67–1.34) and 0.48% (0.26–0.70) increase in CVD hospitalizations.

Disability-adjusted life years and economic cost assessment of the health effects related to PM2.5 and PM10 pollution in Mumbai and Delhi, in India from 1991 to 2015
TLDR
The attributable number of mortality due to PM10 in Mumbai and Delhi increased to 32,014 and 48,651 in 2015 compared with 19,291 and 19,716 in year 1995 and a crucial presumption is that in 2030, PM10 levels would have to decline by 44% and 67% absolutely to maintain the same health outcomes in year 2015 levels.
Assessment of health-based economic costs linked to fine particulate (PM2.5) pollution: a case study of haze during January 2013 in Beijing, China
TLDR
This specific haze event in Beijing caused 479 acute deaths from all causes and the economic cost of the deaths attributed to PM2.5 pollution was ~180 million USD, equivalent to 0.76 % of the gross domestic product (GDP).
Systematic review of Chinese studies of short-term exposure to air pollution and daily mortality.
Fine particulate matter (PM2.5) in China at a city level
TLDR
It is found only 25 out of 190 cities could meet the National Ambient Air Quality Standards of China, and the population-weighted mean of PM2.5 in Chinese cities are 61 μg/m3, ~3 times as high as global population- Weighted mean, highlighting a high health risk.
Long-Term Exposure to Ambient Air Pollution and Mortality Due to Cardiovascular Disease and Cerebrovascular Disease in Shenyang, China
TLDR
Long-term exposure to ambient air pollution is associated with the death of cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases among Chinese populations.
