WHO/Europe's software tool AirQ+ performs calculations that allow quantification of the health effects of exposure to air pollution, including estimates of the reduction in life expectancy.

AirQ+ estimates:

  • the effects of short-term changes in air pollution (based on risk estimates from time-series studies);
  • the effects of long-term exposures (using life-tables approach and based on risk estimates from cohort studies).

AirQ+ can be used, with some limitations, for cities, countries or regions to estimate:
 

  • How much of a particular health effect is attributable to selected air pollutants?
  • Compared to the current scenario, what would be the change in health effects if air pollution levels changed in the future?
