Abstract: Epidemiological studies have consistently shown associations between particulate air pollution, especially with fine particles, and mortality and morbidity. This study has assessed the effects of particulate air pollution in terms of health status and economic cost and reviewed policy options to reduce the air pollution problem in Armidale. The first stage of the study involved a theoretical assessment of the health effects and economic costs of the current level of air pollution. The calculation of health effect used dose-response relationships from relevant epidemiological literature. Recognised monetary values were attached to estimated health effects. A conservative estimate of the annual economic cost of mortality effects and restricted activity days due to particulate air pollution in Armidale ranged between A$6.5 million and A$25.7 million
