Jouni: "Issues relating to uncertainty could be written under results, rather than scope. The shape of the distribution should not be included here, since it restricts us from updating our model should we come across data at a later stage that suggests different distributions." Added by Jgrellier 15:39, 19 February 2008 (EET)

----1: . The result should contain the actual distributions (or descriptive statistic such as mean, SD, and a few fractiles. --Jouni 13:58, 21 February 2008 (EET) (type: truth; paradigms: science: comment)

----2: . Descriptive statistics are now added to the results. Distributions in the original article were wrong, and therefore not included in the results --Päivi Meriläinen 15:28, 21 February 2008 (EET) (type: truth; paradigms: science: comment)

Unit of dose response -- Juha Villman 14:01, 21 February 2008 (EET)

How to read discussions

Fact discussion: .
Opening statement: Unit of dose response should be deaths per ug/m3

Closing statement: Resolution not yet found.

(A closing statement, when resolved, should be updated to the main page.)

Argumentation:

←--1: . The unit "m3/ug" only refers to the inverse of concentration, but does not really describe the concentration-response relationship, which is the number of deaths expected per unit concentration. --Miranda (type: truth; paradigms: science: defence)

----2: . Can the unit be "relative increase of mortality per 1 μgm-3 increase of outdoor PM2.5 concentration"? --Päivi Meriläinen 14:45, 21 February 2008 (EET) (type: truth; paradigms: science: comment)

⇤--3: . The unit for relative increase of mortality per 1 μgm-3 increase of outdoor PM2.5 concentration, which refers to the ratio, not the percentage, is "m3/ug" --Päivi Meriläinen 15:26, 21 February 2008 (EET) (type: truth; paradigms: science: attack)

Opening statement: The unit of this variable passes the unit test in the assessment

Argumentation:
⇤--1Unitless dose response coefficient is used in the downstream variable (health effects) but the unit in this variable is "m3/ug".: . --Päivi Meriläinen 15:41, 21 February 2008 (EET) {{{3}}} (type: truth; paradigms: science: attack)
