Patterns of Air Quality around Australia: Summary and Star Ratings


Air pollution is an important contributor to the burden of disease in Australia, linked to lung disease, heart disease and stroke. Inspired by the health star rating system for food, which enables consumers to compare the relative healthiness of similar food products, we developed a five-star rating system that recognises the attributes of air quality that promote better health.
