To determine the effects of long-term PM2.5 exposure on cardiovascular mortality and hospitalizations.
FINRISK subjects are randomly sampled adults from the population register in Eastern and Western Finland.
The surveys are carried out every 5 years. Survey is focused on chronic disease risk factors. For CLAIH, data collected in 1997 and 2002 will be used for the Helsinki/Vantaa and Turku/Liomaa areas. Home addresses and moving history data will also be needed for this cohort.
Five year average outdoor PM2.5 concentrations pre-survey years at home addresses.
