    The purpose of this paper is to describe the research method of meta-analysis and to use meta-analytical techniques to observe contextual and methodological constraints which are as many sources of divergences between the estimates of health costs of air pollution. Indeed, meta-analysis is a research method to summarize, evaluate and analyse previously obtained research results. Although it has been first employed for medical sciences, it is increasingly used in economics as a complement to a state of the art literature review. La monétarisation des externalités environnementales s’est considérablement développée ces dernières années. Dans le domaine de l’évaluation des dommages sanitaires attribués à la pollution atmosphérique, diverses méthodes ont été employées. À partir de l’ensemble des résultats, il est intéressant d’essayer d’établir une relation entre valeur obtenue et méthode utilisée.
