Table 2 Associations between Entire Pregnancy Average Ta, tLBW and SGA in Singleton Term Infants, Southern Israel, 2004–2013

From: Associations between ambient air temperature, low birth weight and small for gestational age in term neonates in southern Israel

Outcome Ta Exposure Category Odds Ratio (95% CI)
tLBW Lowest quartile (Ta = < 18.5) 1.33 (1.11–1.58)
Intermediate quartiles Reference
Highest quartile (Ta > =21.3) 1.17 (0.99–1.38)
SGA Lowest quartile (Ta = < 18.5) 1.18 (1.09–1.29)
Intermediate quartiles Reference
Highest quartile (Ta > =21.3) 0.91 (0.84–0.99)
  1. Ta Average ambient air temperature, tLBW term low birth weight, SGA small for gestational age. Odds ratios were adjusted for calendar month, year of birth, particulate matter < 2.5 μm (PM2.5), maternal age at birth, gravidity, parity, ethnicity, newborn sex, census-level poverty index and population density
