The Effect of Fine and Coarse Particulate Air Pollution on Mortality: A National Analysis

Abstract

BACKGROUND Although many studies have examined the effects of air pollution on mortality, data limitations have resulted in fewer studies of both particulate matter with an aerodynamic diameter of <or= 2.5 microm (PM(2.5); fine particles) and of coarse particles (particles with an aerodynamic diameter > 2.5 and < 10 microm; PM coarse). We conducted a… (More)
