The Asian Games, Air Pollution and Birth Outcomes in South China: An Instrumental Variable Approach

We estimate the causal effects of air pollution exposure on low birthweight, birth-weight, and prematurity risk in South China, for all expectant mothers and by maternal age group and child sex. We

Improving Prediction and Risk Factor Analysis of Low Birthweight Baby Outcomes in a U.S. Hospital System

TLDR
Six popular machine learning and deep learning algorithms were applied and the XGBoost model achieved the highest performance with an F1-score of 0.82, providing informative guidelines for health practitioners to understand the cause of LBW for individually targeted early prevention programs.

Effects of maternal exposure to fine particulate matter on birth weight in 16 counties across China: a quantile regression analysis

TLDR
Maternal exposure to PM2.5 was associated with reduction in birth weight, especially for those with very low birth weight and well-educated, migrant and primiparous mothers, as well as births in coastal areas may be more sensitive to PM 2.5 in this study population.

Fine Particulate Air Pollution and Birthweight: Differences in Associations Along the Birthweight Distribution.

TLDR
In full-term live births, PM2.5 and birthweight were negatively associated with more severe associations at lower quantiles of birthweight, and the magnitudes of negative associations were larger at lower deciles.

Atmospheric Air Pollution and Birth Weight

We examine the impact of air pollution (PM10 measure) on birth weight, probability of being Low Birth Weight (less than 2500 grams), and Very Low Birth Weight (less than 1500 grams). We exploit the

INTRODUCTION We investigated the extent to which associations of ambient air pollutant concentrations and birth weight varied across birth weight quantiles. METHODS We analyzed singleton births ≥27

Ambient air pollution exposure and full-term birth weight in California

TLDR
This study indicates that maternal exposure to ambient air pollution results in modestly lower infant birth weight, and suggests that precautionary efforts to reduce pollutants may be beneficial for infant health from a population perspective.
