Heat-Associated Mortality in a Hot Climate : Maricopa County, Arizona, 2006-2016.
We examined significant associations between variables by using the Pearson χ2 tests and logistic regression. RESULTS: During 2006-2016, MCDPH recorded data on 920 heat-associated deaths, 912 of which included location of injury. Of 565 (62%) heat-associated deaths that occurred outdoors, 458 (81%) were among male decedents and 243 (43%) were among decedents aged 20-49. Of 347 (38%) heat-associated deaths that occurred indoors, 201 (58%) were among decedents aged ≥65. Non-Arizona residents were 5 times as likely as Arizona residents to have a heat-associated death outdoors (P
