ASSESSMENT OF RELATION BETWEEN CLIMATE VARIABLES AND DAILY COUNTS OF DEATHS FROM CEREBROVASCULAR DISEASES IN ASTANA CITY
Several European and North American studies have reported association between climate variables, especially temperatures, and mortality from diseases of the circulatory system. Moreover, previous studies were performed in temperature, subtropical, and tropical climates [1-7], while evidence on the effect of temperature on cardiovascular diseases from continental, semiarid, and arid climates is still scarce. In this research studied associations between temperature and mortality from cerebrovascular diseases among adults 18 years older in the city of Astana, Kazakhstan. Associations between mortality and mean apparent temperature and minimum apparent temperature were studied using Poisson regression controlling for barometric pressure,
wind speed and effects of month, year, weekends and holidays.
Key words: climatic and meteorological parameters and mortality, temperature-caused mortality, cerebrovascular diseases.
