Assessment of respiratory disorders in relation to solution gas flaring activities in Alberta

Description

Alberta Health conducted a study of health data, socioeconomic and environmental factors including solution gas flaring activity in response to concerns raised through the Clean Air Strategic Alliance (CASA). The study involved information for the period 1994 to 1996 on population demographics, physician claims and hospitalizations collected from Alberta Health databases. This information was compared to data on flaring activities obtained from the Alberta Energy and Utilities Board (AEUB). The health disorders investigated were asthma, bronchitis, pneumonia and respiratory infections. The age-standardized rate of physician claims and hospitalizations were estimated for each postal code area in the province.
