To investigate the possible relationship between airborne particulate matter and mortality, we developed regression models of daily mortality counts using meteorological covariates and measures of outdoor PM10. Our analyses included data from Cook County, Illinois, and Salt Lake County, Utah. We found no evidence that particulate matter < or = 10 m...

(1995) employed data for Chicago, USA, between 1985 and1990, and found that all-cause mortality increased by 0.3% with statistical significance, except for extrinsic mortality. Laden et al. (2000) found a 3.4% increase in daily mortality when PM 2.5 increased by 10 μg/m 3 ; these results are similar to those of this study. ...
