Air pollution is dangerous sespecially to the residents in cities, as it causes lung, heart, or respiratory illness. Public health professionals ponder whether the air pollution is significantly controilled. The amount of existing air pollution is measurable, but not its regulated level, which is therefore as a parameter in a novel manner in this article. However, there is no suitable methodology in the literature to extract and test whether the an estimated data evidence about the regulated air pollution level is significant. To fulfill the need, this article constructs a methodology based on tapered probability model for the air pollution data. Our new methodology is demonstrated using the air pollution data in African, American, Asian, European and Oceanic continents.
