The data analysis of SO2 pollution in Tirana urban station of Hydrometeorological Institute is described in this paper. Results of two years of measurements are presented and discussed. Two methods are used for this purpose: direct method and approaching a model distribution of the data one. The two methods are compared and contrasted. Regarding to daily and annual course analysis the direct method is more appropriate. Regarding the risk prediction and use of short records of the data, the other method is privileged. Attempts are made also to explain the influence of meteorological elements over air pollution with SO2.
