Air health trends – Mortality attributable to fine particulate matter by age and sex, Canada

Air health trends – Mortality attributable to fine particulate matter by age and sex, Canada The Canadian Environmental Sustainability Indicators (CESI) program provides data and information to track Canada's performance on key environmental sustainability issues. The Air health trends indicators were developed as a tool to monitor trends in public health impacts in Canada attributable to short-term exposure to 2 important outdoor air pollutants: ground-level ozone and fine particulate matter. Exposure to air pollution can lead to chronic lung disease, heart attacks, strokes and mortality. These adverse health effects contribute to economic costs through lost productivity and additional visits to doctors’ offices and hospitals. They also influence overall well-being when individuals and families must deal with illness and death. Information is provided to Canadians in a number of formats including: static and interactive maps, charts and graphs, HTML and CSV data tables and downloadable reports. See the supplementary documentation for the data sources and details on how the data were collected and how the indicator was calculated.
