The aim of the study was to determine whether the area of Tanggu, Tianjin Binhai New Economic Developing Area, China, is subject to similar effects of ambient particulate matter less than 10 micrometres in aerodynamic diameter (PM10) similar to other areas of China. This study was designed to investigate cause-specific mortality risks associated with air pollution in this geographical region. The present study used a time-series analysis to explore the relationship between PM10 and the cause-specific mortalities for non-accidental, cardiovascular, and cardiopulmonary mortality from 1 January 2006 to 31 December 2010. A 10 μg/m3 increment of PM10 was associated with a 1.02% (95% confidence interval (CI): 0.48, 1.56) increase in cardiovascular mortality, and a 0.88% (95% CI: 0.36, 1.39) increase in cardiopulmonary mortality. In addition, the effects from PM10 appear to be consistent with multi-pollutant models. The results show that there are strong associations between daily cardiovascular and cardiopulmonary mortality and ambient PM10 exposure.
