Abstract

In Table 1, values for the mean “Monthly under 5 mortality” variable and mean “Monthly death count(age30days)” variable are incorrect. Please see the complete, correct Table 1 here. (Table Presented) There are errors in the S1 Table and its caption. The correct caption is: “S1 Table. Models of mean temperature effects on child mortality and gender mortality. Monthly under 5 mortality ratio ((U5MR); Deaths before 60 months of age per 1000 live births) or gender mortality (count of monthly deaths before 153 days) regressed on MEAN monthly temp and MEAN temp in the prior month. All models use first differences of all variables to correct for non- stationarity. ARIMA terms included to minimize AIC.” Please view the complete, correct S1 Table below. There are errors in the S2 Table and its caption. The correct caption is: “S2 Table. Models of maximum temperature effects on child mortality and gender mortality. Monthly under 5 mortality ratio (Deaths before 60 months of age per 1000 live births) or gender mortality (count of monthly deaths before 153 days) regressed on MAXIMUM monthly temp and MAXIMUM temp in the prior month. All models use first differences of all variables to correct for non-stationarity.” Please view the complete, correct S2 Table below. There are errors in the S3 Table caption. The correct caption is: “S3 Table. Models of mean temperature effects on neonatal and post neonatal. Monthly neonatal mortality (Death count before 1 month) and monthly post neonatal mortality (Death count between 30 and 153 days) regressed on MEAN monthly temp and MEAN temp in the prior month. All models use first differences of all variables to correct for non- stationarity. ARIMA terms included to minimize AIC. Both sexes analysed together.” There are errors in the S4 Table caption.
