Abstract

A cross-sectional study was conducted to explore the relationship between in-door air pollution caused by different fuels for domestic use and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) in local population. A total population of 10892 were sampled and analyzed. Results showed in-door air pollution caused by coal-burning was the major risk factor for COPD in Xuanwei County. The risk of residents using soft coal and anthracite to suffer from COPD was 4.36 and 1.55 times, respectively, higher than in those using fire wood.
