This news is based on the following article: Reames TG, Bravo MA. People, place and pollution: Investigating relationships between air quality perceptions, health concerns, exposure, and individual- and area-level characteristics. Environ Int 2019 ; 122 : 244-55. doi : 10.1016/j.envint.2018.11.013


Four year data from an annual survey in the population of Kansas City, Missouri (USA) were used to explore the relations between perceptions of air quality and health concerns and to assess their characteristics. The results of this work call for more explicitly tailored awareness campaigns and warning systems.
