Shakar Mammadova

The aim of this work is to study the impact of pollution of the atmospheric air on health of population in large cities of Azerbaijan. The spread of different deceases among the population finds its reflection in statistical data. Referring to this data and the concentration of various harmful substances in the air, as well as theoretical knowledge and methodology on revealing of dependency of human health on the related pollution, the author of work investigates correlations between statistics of arising of deceases of respiratory pipe, digestive organs, nervous system and sensation organs, blood and blood-reproductive organs, congential anomalies and pollution of the atmospheric air among the population of large cities of Azerbaijan. The study takes into consideration the relevant situation in large cities of the country, with using definitions ‘pollution index’, ‘risk index’, ‘coefficient of correlation’, ‘allowed concentration’ and others. The gained results allow identify correlation and extent of impact of air pollution on health of the population in cities.
