Few epidemiological studies have reported the spatial characteristics of the association between particulate matter <10μm in aerodynamic diameter (PM(10)) and mortality in China. This study explored the spatial characteristics of the association between ambient PM(10) and mortality in the urban area of Beijing, China. We collected daily data on air pollution, weather conditions and mortality in the eight urban districts of Beijing from Jan. 1st 2008 to Dec. 31st 2009. A Poisson Generalized… CONTINUE READING
