McMichael, Anthony; Wilkinson, Paul; Kovats, R Sari

Description

This study describes and characterises the temperature-mortality relation in cities poorer than those usually studied. It shows an effect by heat as well as by cold, but responses differ substantially according to locality, and the explanatory factors must be identified.
