Previous studies of lung function in children have indicated that decreases in lung function are associated with higher air pollution exposures. For this reason, three quarter second timed forced expiratory volume was chosen as one of the health indicators in the Environmental Protection Agency's Community Health Environmental Surveillance System (CHESS). The city of Chattanooga, Tennessee was chosen because of its exposure to a large stationary source of nitrogen dioxide. The present study, conducted in 1971-1972, was a follow-up to an earlier study performed by Shy, et al. in 1968-1969. The present study did not confirm the slight differences found in the earlier study. This might be explained by the reduction in NO2 levels since the 1968-1969 study.
