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

Remarks:

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

(2) 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.

(3) WHO’s annual AQG (2006):


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