Monitor Data.Pollutant concentration data that are based upon measurements. “Raw” monitor
data usually refers to data that are taken directly from measurement networks, with no additional
processing of the data. Monitor data are different from “model data,” which are based upon
Monitoring.Actual measurements of air pollution levels. The U.S. Environmental Protection
Agency has monitoring data, as well as other information related to monitoring, available through
its Air Quality System (AQS):http://www.epa.gov/air/data/aqsdb.html.
Morbidity.A measure of being diseased or afflicted by an illness (non-fatal).
Mortality.A measure of the number of deaths in a given population.
National Ambient Air Quality Standards (NAAQS). The U.S. EPA establishes levels for
pollutants that are considered harmful to public health and the environment. The Clean Air Act
established two types of national air quality standards. Primary standards set limits to protect
public health, including the health of "sensitive" populations such as asthmatics, children, and the
elderly. Secondary standards set limits to protect public welfare, including protection against
decreased visibility and against damage to animals, crops, vegetation, and buildings. The U.S.
EPA has set NAAQS for six principal pollutants, which are called "criteria" pollutants. (Carbon
Monoxide, Lead, Nitrogen Dioxide, Ozone, Particulate Matter (PM2.5, PM10), and Sulfur
