Smoking is the most well-established cause of chronic
airflow obstruction (CAO) but particulate air pollution
and poverty have also been implicated. We regressed
sex-specific prevalence of CAO from 41 Burden of
Obstructive Lung Disease study sites against smoking
prevalence from the same study, the gross national
income per capita and the local annual mean level
of ambient particulate matter (PM2.5) using negative
binomial regression. The prevalence of CAO was not
independently associated with PM2.5 but was strongly
associated with smoking and was also associated with
poverty. Strengthening tobacco control and improved
understanding of the link between CAO and poverty
should be prioritised.
