Percentage of population resident in urban areas potentially exposed to PM10 concentration levels exceeding the daily limit value, EEA member countries, 1997-2006
Over the years 1997-2006 the total population for which exposure estimates are made, increases from 26 to 102 million people due to an increasing number of monitoring station reporting air quality data. Year-to-year variations in exposure classes are partly caused by the changes in spatial coverage.
