Table 4-6a presents the variables that can be used in incidence and prevalence datasets, and

Table 4-6b presents a sample dataset that follows this format.

4.1.5 Population Data

The population data is used to estimate population exposure and in turn any adverse health

effects associated with a change in air pollution. BenMAP allows the user to specify race,

ethnicity, gender, and age of the population, as well as the year of the population estimate.

Population data loaded into BenMAP must be associated with a Population Configuration,

which defines the races, ethnicities, genders, and age ranges present in the data. Race, ethnicity,

and gender are unique text values representing population subgroups. Age ranges are defined by

integer values for starting age and ending age (inclusive), and a unique text value representing the

name of the age range. For example, “0TO1” might be used as a name for the age range defined

by a start age of zero and an end age of one, thus consisting of infants through the first twelve

months of life and all one-year old infants. The population data provided to BenMAP should

then contain population values for all combinations of race, ethnicity, gender, and age range. The

population values may be real numbers (e.g., non-integer values).

Population data must also be associated with a Grid Definition which specifies the geographic

areas for which the data is available (see for more details the section on Grid Definitions). If

population data is available for multiple grid definitions (cities and neighborhoods, for example),

users can have the option of using different sets of population data for different analyses.

BenMAP can also estimate populations for Grid Definitions for which no population data is

available by calculating spatial overlap percentages with Grid Definitions for which data is
