The WHOGS is a multicountry, cross-sectional survey that collected data on all deliveries in participating facilities for 2-3 months, depending on the annual volume of deliveries of the facility.
The WHOGS defined preterm birth as gestational age of < 37 weeks at delivery, as determined by the best available obstetric estimate of gestational age.
Our objective was to use these [PM.sub.2.5] concentrations to estimate exposure during pregnancy among the women whose data were captured by the WHOGS. Health facilities participating in the WHOGS were geocoded using the exact address or city information, as available, to determine the closest possible geographical coordinates using Google Earth (http://www.google.com/earth/).
By using data from women in the WHOGS and [PM.sub.2.5] levels derived from remote sensing data, we were able to estimate associations for a study population that included women from areas of the world where it is often difficult to acquire reliable data on both pregnancy outcomes and air pollution concentrations.
