The report gives results of research to develop quantitative models for relating emissions of air pollutants to their effects on people, and to use the methodology for determining the relative importance of air pollution sources. The quantitative methodology for ranking the sources developed in this project includes consideration of the dispersion of air pollutants, exposure of people, and subsequent health effects. The computer model, called POPEX, consists of three submodels: dispersion, population, and health effects. The model was applied to sources of air pollution in the Chicago Air Quality Control Region. Results show that 17 of 227 categories of sources contribute nearly 80% of the total air-pollution/population-effect problem. (Portions of this document are not fully legible.)
