BACKGROUND Numerous studies have shown associations between ambient air pollution and daily mortality. OBJECTIVES Our goal was to investigate the association of ambient air pollution and daily mortality in Erfurt, Germany, over a 10.5-year period after the German unification, when air quality improved. METHODS We obtained daily mortality counts and data on mass concentrations of particulate matter (PM)<10 microm in aerodynamic diameter (PM10), gaseous pollutants, and meteorology in Erfurt… CONTINUE READING
