Heat related mortality in the two largest Belgian urban areas: A time series analysis

until 2011 taking into account the effect of air pollution. Methods The threshold in temperature above which mortality increases was determined using segmented regressions for both urban areas. The ...

Decreasing rates of major lower-extremity amputation in people with diabetes but not in those without: a nationwide study in Belgium.

standardised annual amputation rate (first per year) in the populations with and without diabetes for major and minor LEA s, and the corresponding relative risks. To test for time trends, Poisson regression ...

Relationships between aeroallergen levels and hospital admissions for asthma in the Brussels-Capital Region: a daily time series analysis.

were performed. Effects up to 6 days after exposure were captured by combining quasi-Poisson regression with distributed lag models, adjusting for seasonal and long-term trends, day of the week, public ...

Short-term effects of nitrogen dioxide on hospital admissions for cardiovascular disease in Wallonia, Belgium.

hospitals. Analyses were performed using the quasi-Poisson regression model adjusted for seasonality, long-term trend, day of the week, and temperature. Our study confirms the existence of an association ...

Childhood leukaemia near nuclear sites in Belgium, 2002–2008

living in the vicinity of the nuclear sites in Belgium. Poisson regression modelling was carried out for proximity areas of varying sizes. In addition, the hypothesis of a gradient in leukaemia incidence ...

Educational inequalities in premature mortality by region in the Belgian population in the 2000s

variables (education, employment and housing) in explaining the regional mortality difference was explored through a Poisson regression. Age-standardised mortality rates (ASMR s) by educational level (EL), ...

Respiratory medication sales and urban air pollution in Brussels (2005 to 2011).

and 2011. METHODS: We used over-dispersed Poisson Generalized Linear Models to regress daily individual reimbursement data of prescribed asthma and COPD medication from the social security database against ...

Childhood leukaemia near nuclear sites in Belgium, 2002-2008.

acute leukaemia among children aged 0-14 years living in the vicinity of the nuclear sites in Belgium. Poisson regression modelling was carried out for proximity areas of varying sizes. In addition, the ...

Mapping the cause-specific premature mortality reveals large between-districts disparity in Belgium, 2003-2009

association with the geographical distribution of unemployment was examined both visually and tested with a Poisson regression.Results: The clear geographical pattern with lower premature mortality rates in the ...

The global activity limitation indicator and self-rated health: two complementary predictors of mortality.

METHODS: We linked the 2001 Belgian Health Interview Survey with mortality and migration registers 2001-2010. The baseline sample included 8,583 individuals aged 15 years and older. Poisson regression models ...
