    Abstract

    This article measures the effect of the Great London Smog on fetal loss by testing for missing births in the subsequent nine months, using newly available data. Results show the five day smog resulted in a 3% reduction in the size of the cohort affected in the third trimester, and a 1.5% reduction in the size of the cohort affected in their first trimester.
