Latest Annual AQI

The Annual Air Quality Index (AAQI) is the ratio of the past 12-month rolling average concentration to the annual air quality guidelines (AQG) of the World Health Organization (WHO).

AAQI = 12-month rolling concentrations/Annual WHO AQG concentration

Remarks:

(1) NO2 - nitrogen dioxide, PM10 - respirable suspended particulates, PM2.5 - fine suspended particulates

(2) The AAQI is updated monthly. The AAQI is calculated based on validated monitoring data.

(3) An AAQI greater than one indicates that the health risk resulted from long-term exposure is higher than that of the WHO's annual AQG, whereas an index below one means a lower risk.

(4) WHO’s annual AQG (2006):

Annual WHO AQG
(μg/m3)
NO2 40
PM10 20
PM2.5 10
