Paper Abstract

The paper represents a trial of defining and testing a systematic methodology to study medical phenomena in which large sets of variables of an essentially qualitative kind are envolved. The methodology con sists in the organized application of the various methods of the Data Analysis and the Multivariate Statistics to the epidemiology in order to analyze phenomena very complex as to the numerousness and variety of the variables, to evaluate the environment influence, to understand the phenomenon evolution. The data analysis techniques play the role both of tools for synthesizing and validating indexes and of methods for formulating models of the disease propagation, by defining the prognostic function. The methodology is applied to define the epidemiological model of the Essential Arterial Hypertension.
