Air Pollution and Mortality: Results from Santiago, Chile

Air Pollution and Mortality: Results from Santiago, Chile

Bart Ostr, Jose Miguel Sanchez, Carlos Aranda et al (1995). Policy Research Working Paper 1453, The World Bank, Washington DC

This study of dose-response relationships between particulate air pollution (PM10) and premature deaths shows that death from respiratory and cardiovascular disease was more responsive to changes in PM10 than total mortality was. The same holds for mortality among men and mortality among individuals older than 64. The results are surprising consistent with results from industrial countries.
