  1. Results are presented as relative risks for a 1 standard deviation increase in each pollutants value (measured in μ gm −3) which are (in the order of the aggregation metrics below): NO2 (9.56, 13.63, 9.6, 13.51), O3 (13.55, 15.8, 13.79, 15.97), PM10 (5.1, 7.47, 5.17, 7.52), PM2.5 (4.22, 6.05, 4.22, 6.06), SO2 (1.38, 3.48, 1.77, 3.83)
