Abstract

The paper looked at possible socioeconomic factors that influence disease. In addition, Anghel and Joshi introduced a visualization tool called DiseaseTrends that explores the associations and possible correlations of diabetes prevalence and cancer incidence rates with socioeconomic factors such as: 1) personal income per capita, 2) education (percentage of adult population with a four year college degree), and 3) environmental factors (air pollution level).
