  1. Outdoor air temperature and mortality in the Netherlands : a time-series analysis.

    Article - En anglais

    Death rates become progressively higher when outdoor air temperature rises above or falls below 20-25oC.

    This study addresses the question of whether this relation is largely attributable to the direct effects of exposure to heat and cold on the human body in general, and on the circulatory system in particular.

    The association between daily mortality and daily temperatures in the Netherlands in the period 1979-1987 was examined by controlling for influenza incidence, air pollution, and « season »; distinguishing lag periods; examining effect modification by wind speed and relative humidity; and distinguishing causes of death.
