Figure 4. Predicted probability of an inpatient hospitalization for bacterial pneumonia being coded as Legionnaires’ disease, all US states, 2011. The predicted risk is for a 61–70-year-old white man on Medicare (the most common patient in the pooled case–control sample) by location 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.
