Databases

Internet-Based Health and Air Pollution Surveillance System (iHAPSS). iHAPSS is funded by HEI and developed and maintained by the Department of Biostatistics at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health. It contains data and analytical software from the National Morbidity, Mortality and Air Pollution Study (NMMAPS).

HEI Air Quality Database. This database is funded by HEI and prepared and maintained by Atmospheric and Environmental Research (AER). It contains information on levels of PM2.5 components and gases from the EPA’s Chemical Speciation Network (CSN), as well as meteorological, population and other relevant data. It is made available in association with Request for Applications 05-1 and to other investigators interested in using the information for studies on air quality and health. Questions about accessing the information in the database should be addressed to Dr. Matthew Alvarado at AER.

RIOPA database. This database is funded by HEI and prepared and maintained by Atmospheric and Environmental Research (AER). It contains information collected in the Relationships of Indoor, Outdoor, and Personal Air (RIOPA) study that was cofunded by HEI and the National Urban Air Toxics Research Center (NUATRC) and conducted in three cities with different air pollution source profiles: Los Angeles, California; Houston, Texas; and Elizabeth, New Jersey. The database is made available in association with Request for Applications 08-1. Questions about accessing the information in the database should be addressed to Dr. Matthew Alvarado at AER.
