Life expectancy and health behaviours for Public Health Units (PBL Batch Mode)
Project ID: 2017-031/2018 0901 161 000
Type of Response: Research project
Knowledge User: Public Health Ontario
ICES Scientist: Doug Manuel
Summary:Expanding on the Project Big Life application program interface (API) developed from the ICES/Public Health Ontario Seven More Years Report, a new “batch mode” feature of the API will allow an all-cause mortality risk algorithm (MPoRT) to be performed on databases containing thousands of individual respondents, instead of the existing “individual mode.” This work represents a data science approach to allow health planners to use predictive analytics that were developed using ICES data.
