      The Air Quality Life Index measures the potential gain in life expectancy that communities could see if they reduced air pollution to comply with the World Health Organization guideline or National standards.

      The World Health Organization's (WHO) recommended standard for what is considered safe exposure to annual particulate matter pollution is 10 micrograms per cubic meter (µg/m3). Many countries also have national air quality standards.
