There are a wide range of variables that can be included in a health impact function, to specify the

parameters of the function and to identify its source, such as the author, year, and location of the

study, as well as other pollutants used in the study. The bibliographic reference for the study may

be included, as well as any additional information needed to identify a particular impact function.

(The Reference and Qualifier variables are useful for this.) A number of health impact

functions have been developed based on epidemiological studies in the United States and

Europe. However, researchers have conducted an increasing number of epidemiological studies

in Asia and Latin America that can be used to develop more location-specific impact functions.

There are a number of issues that arise when deriving and choosing between health impact

functions that go well beyond this user manual. Hence, it is important to have a trained health

researcher assist in developing the impact function data file.
