Abstract

Residential environmental quality has been widely concerned in recent years. The 8-12 years old children in their active moment of physical development are susceptible to residential environmental pollutants, which could lead to various diseases. Therefore, a questionnaire survey related to association between residential environmental quality and children's health was investigated on the 4th and 5th grade school children in Beijing of China in 2012. And then, the single factor analysis and unconditioned stepwise logistic regression analysis to study the residential environmental influential factors on children's medical symptoms defined by American Thoracic Society-Division of Lung Diseases (ATS-DLD) were carried out. This paper demonstrates that 'raising pets', 'window form' etc. are great influential factors on children's health and indicates that residential environment produces a great impact on respiratory symptoms and allergic symptoms.
