St. Louis Pollution-Morbidity Study

One of three reports on a study to quantify the air pollution-induced morbidity costs for individuals residing in the St. Louis Standard Metropolitan Statistical Area. The study was carried out by means of a household survey, collection of pollution information from local monitoring stations, and integration of the resulting data elements in order to analyze pollution/health relationships. The purpose of this report is to describe the types of analyses that can be conducted and the procedures that are required to link the pollution data from monitoring networks with human activity pattern and health data from the original and supplemental surveys.

The second report describing the database is listed above under List of all reports in the Series. The third report, which analyzed the results of the larger study, is found in a different series with the title of An Economic Analysis of Air Pollution and Health: The Case of St. Louis. Volume VI of Methods Development in Measureing Benefits of Environmental Improvements.
