Abstract:The artificial neural network modelling technique (ANN) was used to predict heart disease prevalence as affected by gender, age, hypertension, diabetes, inactivity, smoking and obesity. ANN predicted the heart disease prevalence with an absolute average error lower than 5% and showed that it is highly dependent on inactivity and to a lesser degree on smoking. Activity is the key to reducing the heart disease prevalence.
