Percentage of population resident in urban areas potentially exposed to SO2 concentration levels exceeding the daily limit value, EEA member countries, 1997-2006
2: Over the years 1997-2006 the total population for which exposure estimates are made, increases from 57 to 94 million people due to an increasing number of monitoring station reporting under the Exchange of Information Decision. Year-to-year variations in exposure classes are partly caused by the changes in spatial coverage.
