response. We want to know, for example, if the concentration of PM10 is reduced by 10

micrograms per meter cubed, how many premature deaths will be avoided?

To produce health incidence results, the first step is to calculate the change in pollution

concentrations that would be produced by the application of a given set of emissions controls.

The concentration change in a pollutant is the increment between the control scenario and the

baseline scenario. This increment and a gridded population dataset are then used in health impact

functions to calculate the change in health incidence that would result from this change in pollution.

These functions are based on epidemiological studies and can be selected by the user. Typically,

these health incidence results show the decrease in health incidence (e.g. the decrease in asthma,

bronchitis, mortality, etc) due to a decrease in pollution.

In BenMAP, the selected health impact functions are stored in configurations, which can be reused

over and over again.
