Figure 3

Predicted probability of an inpatient hospitalization for bacterial pneumonia being coded as Legionnaires’ disease by location and month in 2011 for 26 US states. The predicted risk is for a 61–70-year-old white man on Medicare (the most common Legionnaires’ disease patient in the data) by location in the United States for each month in 2011. These fixed covariates and actual monthly temperature, relative humidity, and latitude for each weather station in the Integrated Surface Database dataset

The predicted risk is for a 61–70-year-old white man on Medicare (the most common Legionnaires’ disease patient in the data) by location in the United States for each month in 2011. These fixed covariates and actual monthly temperature, relative humidity, and latitude for each weather station in the Integrated Surface Database dataset were used to produce estimated probabilities using the model described in Table 4.
