Climate Change and Death in India

Robin Burgess and Dave Donaldson (with Michael Greenstone, MIT)

Abstract:

We attempt to estimate the relationship between daily temperature/precipitation and mortality from 1960 to present in India. We will then use predictions from climate change models to forecast how the pattern of mortality across Indian districts is likely to change over time.
