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.
