Excepting the intercepts, a positive estimate means an increase in that variable is associated with an increase in PM Most mortality maps in South Africa and most contried of the sub-Saharan region are static, showing aggregated count data over years or at specific years.
Lack of space and temporral dynamanics in these maps may adversely impact on their use and application for [...] Read more.
