The present paper provides a simple sequential test for eval- uating air quality, to verify a relative higher health risk of some area. The proposed procedure is based on the identification of a Poisson process representing the number of a particular pollutant at day t in a given year. A maximized sequential probability ratio test based on a compos- ite alternative hypothesis has been implemented. The test is performed on emissions of air pollutants in the area of Salerno in which only partial data are available.

Abstract

The present paper provides a simple sequential test for eval- uating air quality, to verify a relative higher health risk of some area. The proposed procedure is based on the identification of a Poisson process representing the number of a particular pollutant at day t in a given year. A maximized sequential probability ratio test based on a compos- ite alternative hypothesis has been implemented. The test is performed on emissions of air pollutants in the area of Salerno in which only partial data are available.
