Studying Death Rates Caused by Air Pollution

Project's result

Leveraging the trained regression models, projections were made for future air pollution-related death rates up to the year 2068. The analysis revealed an encouraging trend, with death rates projected to continue decreasing until approximately 2058-2059 before nearing zero. (Figure 4). If we continue with this pace for the next 40 years we will see that the death rates will be going down drastically. More information can be found in my research paper!

They started it from zero. Are you ready to level up with us?


Air pollution represents a pervasive environmental hazard that poses grave risks to human health worldwide. Prolonged exposure to various air pollutants, such as particulate matter (PM), ozone (O3), and other harmful substances, can precipitate the development of respiratory and cardiovascular diseases, ultimately contributing to increased mortality rates across diverse populations. This comprehensive study aims to conduct an in-depth analysis of air pollution-related death rates across different regions, countries, and socioeconomic development levels, by identifying spatial and temporal trends, as well as key contributing factors, the findings of this research endeavor to inform evidence-based policymaking and guide the implementation of effective mitigation strategies to safeguard public health globally.
