Abstract

The paper uses air temperature and crude death rate data from Belgrade in the period from 1888 to 2008, in order to show expected correlation. Statistical analysis demonstrates significant correlation values between these parameters. Before the First World War people were more sensitive to extreme cold temperatures. Further analysis points out that, in the last twenty years, death rates are increasing more rapidly in the summer season, due to increasing frequencies of extreme air temperature events. - (IKR)
