BACKGROUND Numerous studies have shown a strong association between daily mortality and small particulate with a diameter of <10 microm (PM10) air pollution, but the effects of season have not always been well characterised. AIM To study the shape of the association between short-term mortality and PM10 across seasons and quintiles of outdoor temperature. DESIGN, SETTING AND PARTICIPANTS Daily data on mortality (n = 354 357), outdoor temperature and PM10 in Flanders, Belgium, from January… CONTINUE READING
