Topics: ,
Over the years 1996-2002 the total population, for which exposure estimates are made, increased from 56 to 111 million people due to an increasing number of monitoring stations reporting air quality data


European data


Additional information

Data prior to 1996 with a coverage of less than 50 million people are not representative for the European situation. Year-to-year variations in exposure classes are partly caused by changes in spatial coverage. Only urban background stations have been included in the calculations.
