Air pollution an daily mortality in Birmingham, Alabama.
Several recent studies have reported associations between common levels of particulate air pollution and small increases in daily mortality.
This study examined whether a similar association could be found in the southern United States, with different weather patterns than the previous studies, and examined the sensitivity of the results to different methods of analysis and covariate control.
Data were available in Birmingham, Alabama, from August 1985 through 1988.
Regression analyses controlled for weather, time trends, day of the week, and year of study and removed any long-term patterns (such as seasonal and monthly fluctuations) from the data by trigonometric filtering.
