Whether complex indices of ambient air pollution can be used for sanitary ranging of primary facilities of the district was studied. The indices were calculated by using single air samples. The impact of "zero samples" on the results of calculation of the significance of differences in the single concentrations of individual chemical air pollutants was examined. The average annual concentrations of pollutants were calculated on the basis of average daily maximum allowable concentrations and the a-coefficient recommended by M. A. Pinigin. The database contains 20,000 definitions of the most hazardous chemical pollutants in the ambient air. Significant and insignificant values of chemical pollutants in single ambient air samples may be used in calculating complex indices as the rate of result coincidence was 80%, the suitability of insignificant values for ranging was confirmed in 81.25% of cases.
The paper deals with problems in teaching adolescents at different levels of education (medical lyceum--higher educational establishment (HEE)). Their health status, functional changes that can vary with the pattern of training are comprehensively assessed. The school-HEE program was found to be effective as the high progress of lyceum students causes worse health. The students' high process and low morbidity within an academic year is suggestive of their rapid adaptation to HEE studies.
The article deals with a wide range of technical and practical issues concerning the implementation of social statistics in the study of public health on the basis of the methodology developed in the RAMS National Research Institute of public health and the RAMS Novgorod Research center. It is emphasized that a significant lag of social statistics as applied to the study of public health issues of prevents full fledge implementation of its capabilities in the development of public policy in the field of population health promotion. In this connection, the elaboration of the indicators of social causation of public health and their implementation in the process of development of strategic management decision-making, including the federal and regional medical social programs.
