Health impacts from outdoor concentrations of PM2.5 greater than ATS recommendations (11 µg/m3 for long-term PM2.5; 25 µg/m3 for short-term PM2.5).

Areas already meeting these recommended levels are expected to benefit from further improvements in air quality but these additional health benefits are not included in this analysis.
Health impacts from outdoor concentrations of O3 greater than ATS recommendations (60 ppb).

Areas already meeting these recommended levels are expected to benefit from further improvements in air quality but these additional health benefits are not included in this analysis.
