Monthly number of deaths from cardiovascular disease in people aged 75 and over in Los Angeles for the years 1987 to 2000.
A data frame with 168 observations on the following 8 variables.
year of death
month of death
a combination of year and month: year+(month-1)/12
monthly number of CVD deaths
mean monthly temperature (degrees Fahrenheit)
Los Angeles population aged 75+ in the year 2000 (this value is constant as only one year was available, but in general the population will (of course) change over time)
number of days in each month (used as an offset)
adjusted number of CVD deaths per month using a standardised month length. Monthly number of CVD deaths multiplied by (365.25/12)/ndaysmonth. So the standard month length is 30.4 days.
