The data are a daily time series of hospital admissions for asthma in Nottingham, with levels (in micrograms per cubic metre) of particulate matter less than 10 micrometres in diameter (PM10 levels).




A data frame containing 2922 rows and 3 columns. The column names are 'day' (day of observation, 1 to 2922), 'asma' (number of asthma admissions on that day), and 'pm10' (PM10 level on that day). The data are in time series format, for SCCS analysis using generalised linear models.
