AbstractBACKGROUND AND AIMS: A wide body of epidemiological evidence demonstrated consistent associations between temperature and daily mortality mainly from ecological time series studies. But few studies have examined these associations in a cohort. METHODS: We used a matched case-control design with time-dependent covariates to assess short-term effects of apparent temperature (AT) on mortality in a cohort of 66,820 persons aged 65 years or older, with a total of 14,446 deaths after about 10 years of follow up. The cases and controls were matched by duration of exposure with adjustment for particulate matter of aero-diameter …
