This study was one of two U.S. cohort studies central to the 1997 debate on the National Ambient Air Quality Standard (NAAQS) for fine particulate air pollution in the United States.This process revealed that analyzing spatial autocorrelation in the range of 5 to 10 km would be optimal. ... Arc- View v3.3, ArcMap v9.0, Arclnfo v9.0 (Redlands, CA), S- PLUS 2000 (Boston, MA) and Stata v8 (College Station, TX) were used ... A multiple linear regression model was developed using the significant parameters from the bivariate linear regressions with a manual forward selection processanbsp;...
