Estimating the effects of environmental exposures using a weighted mean of monitoring stations

Barnett, Adrian; Clements, Archie; Vaneckova, P

Description

The health effects of environmental hazards are often examined using time series of the association between a daily response variable (e.g., death) and a daily level of exposure (e.g., temperature). Exposures are usually the average from a network of stations. This gives each station equal importance, and negates the opportunity for some stations to be better measures of exposure. We used a Bayesian hierarchical model that weighted stations using random variables between zero and one. We...[Show more]
