We analyse the association between atmospheric pollution and hospital admissions for respiratory and cardiovascular causes in the province of Torino in 2004. The proposed model, which is fitted using INLA, includes fixed effects at individual and municipality level and spatially structured random effects for pollutants. Preliminary results suggests a lower risk of cardiovascular hospitalization for younger male and females, while the risk of respiratory hospitalization is significantly higher for both males and females and age classes. Summer days are associated with a lower risk for both cardiovascular and respiratory cases.

Abstract

We analyse the association between atmospheric pollution and hospital admissions for respiratory and cardiovascular causes in the province of Torino in 2004. The proposed model, which is fitted using INLA, includes fixed effects at individual and municipality level and spatially structured random effects for pollutants. Preliminary results suggests a lower risk of cardiovascular hospitalization for younger male and females, while the risk of respiratory hospitalization is significantly higher for both males and females and age classes. Summer days are associated with a lower risk for both cardiovascular and respiratory cases.
