BACKGROUND Elevated temperature and air pollution have been associated with increased mortality. Exposure to heat and air pollution, as well as the density of vulnerable groups varies within cities. The objective was to investigate the extent of neighbourhood differences in mortality risk due to heat and air pollution in a city with a temperate maritime climate. METHODS A case-crossover design was used to study associations between heat, air pollution and mortality. Different thermal… CONTINUE READING
