Incidence on Morbi-Mortality for BenMAP

1.- On its data base and for each case of mortality or morbidity (ozone or particles) must divide between the population of the year that is being calculated.

Example:

20,000 cases of asthma mortality in Ghana of the year under study (2015), which should divide the population of the same year in study …

8 billion people in your city by 2015.

Incidence = 20,000 / 8,000,000 = 0.0025

2.- This should be done for each case and should be placed in the appropriate file which should also be compatible with your grid. View incident.csv file

I hope I was clear. Greetings.
