Title

Replication data for "Can you take the heat" Heat-health symptoms are associated with protective behaviors

Description

This dataset contains survey data of the U.S. adult population that includes self-reported heat-health symptoms, protective behaviors implemented during heat waves, and perceptions of how a heat wave would affect personal health and the health of others. Temperature estimates of what participants may have experienced the summer prior to the survey are included at the county level. Demographic variables and spatial scales by region, state, and county are also included.

Methodology

Survey data were collected through a national survey of U.S. adults (18+) conducted from September 30, 2015 to October 19, 2015 (n=1,330) with a margin of error of +/-3% at 95% confidence. Temperature variables were derived from the PRISM Climate Group and Daymet. Metro vs. Non-metro codes were derived from USDA Classification codes. See associated publications for details of these data.
