Public Health England’s 2014 report ‘Estimating local mortality burdens associated with particulate air pollution’ estimated the mortality burden in 2010 associated with long-term exposure to human-made particulate air pollution at local authority level, expressed in terms of attributable deaths and associated loss of life. Further information is available here:

The Public Health Outcomes Framework will release updated data in May 2018, including the indicator 3.01 Fraction of mortality attributable to particulate air pollution.
