Associate classification is a scientific study that is being used by knowledge discovery and decision support system which integrates association rule discovery methods and classification to a model for prediction. An important advantage of these classification systems is that, using association rule mining they are able to examine several features at a time. Associative classifiers are especially fit to applications where the model may assist the domain experts in their decisions. Cardiovascular deceases are the number one cause of death globally. An estimated 17.3 million people died from CVD in 2008, representing 30% of all global deaths. India is at risk of more deaths due to CHD. Cardiovascular disease is becoming an increasingly important cause of death in Andhra Pradesh. Hence a decision support system is proposed for predicting heart disease of a patient. In this paper we propose a new Associate classification algorithm for predicting heart disease for Andhra Pradesh population. Experiments show that the accuracy of the resulting rule set is better when compared to existing systems. This approach is expected to help physicians to make accurate decisions. © 2013 Springer-Verlag. Source
