A population exposure methodology has been developed and applied to total suspended particulate (TSP) in the NY-NJ-Conn Tri-State Region. Ambient TSP data produced by 72 monitoring stations, 1971 to 1973, were used for the analysis of population exposure to TSP. Census data are aggregated into 215 points to form a demographic network. The monitored air quality data are spatially interpolated to each demographic network point to calculate a local population exposure. Annual and quarterly geometric mean concentrations are used to estimate long-term population exposure to TSP. Long-term exposure is characterized by a population dosage spectrum that indicates a population distribution of exposures at various mean concentrations. Population average air quality is computed to indicate representative air quality levels. A health risk index indicates a percentage of the population exposed to air pollution above the annual standard.
