Correlations of dengue cases with climate variables in the Philippines
We determined the associations between weekly regional dengue cases and meteorological data in the Philippines from 2008 to 2014 using cross-correlation analysis. We obtained lags as large as 6 w, 7 w, 19 w, and 20 w for correlations between dengue cases and humidity, rainfall, temperature, and wind speed, respectively. Results show that the estimated lags obtained are consistent with the results previously done with datasets from other countries.
