This model calculates predicted asthma hospital admissions for individuals of all ages in New York City on a minute-by-minute basis for the year 2004. For a detailed description on the method of prediction, see the "About the Method of Calculation" section below, read the FAQ, or e-mail the Website Manager.
NOTICE: The numbers generated by this model do not represent the actual admissions for asthma in hostipals throughout New York City. Rather, the model analyzed historical data on asthma hospital admissions and applied a linear regression algorithm to replicate the trend and predict the admissions for a target year (i.e. 2004).

ABOUT THE METHOD OF CALCULATION:
This Asthma Hospital Admissions Trend Model contributes a time-based element to the data in our current Geographic Information System. A linear regression algorithm was used to analyze individual ZIP code-level data on actual asthma hospital admissions in New York City for the years 1994 thru 2001. Trends for each of the 174 ZIP Codes were separately mapped for the eight year time period specified. This trend was then extended to predict the total admissions in a given ZIP code for a future year, in this case the year 2004. The final predicted values by ZIP Code for 2004 were then used to seed the temporal engine of this model in order to calculate the average span of time between each admission. Hence, the numbers in the table above are calculated in real-time every time this page is loaded/re-loaded in order to display the predicted levels of asthma admissions cases since the beginning of the current year until this moment for which the values were calculated.
