RAND Center for Population Health and Health Disparities (CPHHD) Data Core Series: Pollution, 1988-2004 [United States] (ICPSR 27864) RSS

Principal Investigator(s):

Summary:

The RAND Center for Population Health and Health Disparities (CPHHD) Data Core Series is composed of a wide selection of analytical measures, encompassing a variety of domains, all derived from a number of disparate data sources. The CPHHD Data Core's central focus is on geographic measures for census tracts, counties, and Metropolitan Statistical Areas (MSAs) from two distinct geo-reference points, 1990 and 2000. The current study, Pollution, comprises data for three criteria pollutants, Particulate Matter 10 ug3 (PM 10), Particulate Matter 2.5 ug3 (PM 2.5), and Ozone (O3), each with two different geo-references (1990 geo-reference and 2000 geo-reference), with aggregations made either to quarterly/annual (PM*) or monthly/summertime (O3), each at three different geographic levels of summary (tract, county (geographic), and MSA (geographic)). All data sets in the series are longitudinal, though with different periods of coverage, depending upon the pollutant. The specific available measures vary depending upon the geographic level of summarization.
