Study Summary

This trial is testing whether displaying air pollution data will change people's perceptions of risk and make them more likely to avoid exposure to environmental risks.

Who is the study for?
This trial is for adults who are primary participants in a related exposure assessment study and live in a household with at least one N. Arapaho tribe member. It aims to understand how real-time air pollution data might influence their perception of environmental risks and encourage behaviors that reduce exposure.Check my eligibility
What is being tested?
The study tests if providing real-time feedback on particulate matter (PM) levels changes people's risk awareness and actions to avoid pollution. Households will be split into two groups: one with PM monitors showing live hazard levels, the other displaying only date and time.See study design
What are the potential side effects?
There are no direct medical side effects from participating in this trial as it involves monitoring behavior rather than testing a drug or medical treatment. However, learning about personal exposure to pollutants may cause stress or anxiety.


Screening ~ 3 weeks
Treatment ~ Varies
Follow Up ~6 months after removal of device
This trial's timeline: 3 weeks for screening, Varies for treatment, and 6 months after removal of device for reporting.

2Treatment groups
Experimental Treatment
Active Control
Group I: Real-Time FeedbackExperimental Treatment1 Intervention
Participants will receive real-time exposure monitors that continuously display real-time air concentration information and a color-coded designation for the current risk level.
Group II: No FeedbackActive Control1 Intervention
Participants will have exposure levels monitored by the same device, but it will only display the date/time and will not provide real-time feedback.
