For example, an aqi value of 50 represents good air quality with little or no potential to affect public health, while an aqi value over 300 represents air quality so hazardous that everyone may larger cities typically have more air pollution than smaller cities, so their aqi values may exceed 100 more often. Many of these deaths occur in large cities, where exhaust from cars, factories, and power plants fills the air with hazardous particles for example, the study determined that those who live and work in manhattan are exposed to more pollution than residents who commute to the outer boroughs this type.
