Death rates from outdoor particulate matter air pollution, measured as the number of deaths per 100,000 individuals in 2016 versus death rates in 1990. Death rates are age-standardized, and therefore correct for changes in age structure between countries and over time. Countries which lie below the grey line had lower death rates in 2016 than in 1990; those above the line had higher rates in 2016.
