For its annual report on air quality in Europe(1), the European Environment Agency (EEA) uses air quality data combined with information on population and health outcomes to estimate health risks related to air pollution. The methodology used by the EEA to assess the risks to health from air pollution, which builds on recommendations by the World Health Organisation (WHO), has been detailed in a dedicated briefing.(2)
