BACKGROUND Few data are available on the attributable burden, such as absolute excess or relative excess, of stroke death due to temperature. METHODS We collected data on daily temperature and stroke mortality from 16 large Chinese cities during 2007-2013. First, we applied a distributed lag non-linear model to estimate the city-/age-/gender-specific temperature-mortality association over lag 0-14days. Then, pooled estimates were calculated using a multivariate meta-analysis. Attributable… CONTINUE READING
