Economic assessment of the health effects related to particulate matter pollution in 111 Chinese cities by using economic burden of disease analysis



Economic assessment of the health effects related to particulate matter pollution in 111 Chinese cities by using economic burden of disease analysis



Journal of Environmental Management 88(4): 947-954



With China's rapid economic development, environmental problems have become more and more serious. Particulate air pollution is terrible in cities with large and dense population. It may lead to adverse health effects and economic costs. In this study, we calculated the health effects of pollution caused by particulate matter with aerodynamic diameters less than 10 micro m (PM10) in 111 Chinese cities in 2004 according to statistical data and epidemiological exposure-response functions.
