Figures of pre-dying people are presented in the media as a fact. 400,000 people die prematurely in Europe. How much sooner do these people die? Who appreciates something like that? How to filter other effects, if you only have the demographic data as a basis? As a scientist, I am missing an accuracy of the estimate. Is it maybe 400000 + - 1 million?

Perhaps our "Air Quality in Europe 2016 report" describes the methodology used for calculation of the HIA better.
