A comparison of methods for calculating population exposure estimates of daily weather for health research

Hall, Gillian; Dear, Keith; Hanigan, Ivan


BACKGROUND: To explain the possible effects of exposure to weather conditions on population health outcomes, weather data need to be calculated at a level in space and time that is appropriate for the health data. There are various ways of estimating exposure values from raw data collected at weather stations but the rationale for using one technique rather than another; the significance of the difference in the values obtained; and the effect these have on a research question are...[Show more]
