Outdoor air pollution deaths

per 100,000 people, 1990–2019

Info Edit

    Total outdoor air pollution deaths are given as the sum of ‘Ambient ozone pollution deaths’ and ‘Ambient particulate matter pollution deaths’. The same applies to the calculate of total outdoor pollution rates. Ambient ozone pollution is defined as the highest seasonal (six-month) average of eight-hour daily maximum ozone concentrations. Ambient particulate matter pollution is the population-weighted annual average mass concentration of particles with an aerodynamic diameter less than 2·5 µm in a cubic metre of air.
