This article details data on populations at risk by state, county, city, and metropolitan area. It also includes nationwide and regional analyses, describes the health effects of ozone, and provides information on protecting the nation from the negative impact of ozone. In addition, this site contains multiple links of interest to those concerned with the various aspects of respiratory health.
