The effects of air pollution on mortality are analyzed taking into account individual risk factors such as cigarette smoking. "Survival analysis including Cox proportional-hazards regression modeling was conducted with data from a 14-to-16-year mortality follow-up of 8111 adults in six U.S. cities. Mortality rates were most strongly associated with cigarette smoking. After adjusting for smoking and other risk factors we observed statistically significant and robust associations between air pollution and mortality." (EXCERPT)
