Since 1976, the Medical Institute of Environmental Hygiene conducts epidemiological studies the results of which form a part of the Clean-air plans (Luftreinhaltepläne) of North-Rhine- Westphalia. These studies are intended to monitor the effects of air pollution on human health. Since 1985, six year old children who take part in the compulsory school entrance examination are investigated by our group on a voluntary basis. Response rates of above 90 % could be achieved.
