Created 8 years ago, updated 4 years ago

Data relating to populations and population weighted annual mean PM2.5 (ug/m3) by Ward and estimated attributable deaths (rounded to whole numbers) each year based on 2008 rates at concentration coefficients of 6%, 1% and 12% per 10 ug/m3 of PM2.5.

Note that the 6% co efficient factor is considered the 'best estimate' by the Committee on the Medical Effects of Air Pollutants (COMEAP).
