Project

Understanding the link between air pollution and distribution of related health impacts and welfare in the Nordic countries - NordicWelfAir - project description

Published Updated

This project will investigate the relationships between air pollution and health in the Nordic countries.


Summary

This project will by use of improved exposure characterisation over decades and use of national health registers and cohorts investigate the relationships between air pollution and health in the Nordic countries. Cohorts of adults will be used to study the relationship between air pollution and mortality, whereas cohorts of children will be used to study the relationship with birth outcomes and onset of childhood asthma, all by focusing on susceptible subgroups. Norway participates with The Cohort of Norway (CONOR) and The Norwegian mother and child study (MoBa). The estimated relationships with health will then be used to estimate the extext of health effects in the population and the importance of socioeconomical aspects and effect on welfare.
