The project will describe and predict respiratory hospitalisations in early childhood. Specific study objective is to identify interactions, thresholds, and hierarchies in the relationship between potential risk factors and respiratory hospitalisations in early childhood and to develop a robust predictive model that quantifies these relationships and identifies the areas of most influence on respiratory hospitalisations.

The project will investigate whether there are any patterns of interactions between risk factors and outcomes and whether the relationship between risk factors and outcomes is different in the most deprived groups when compared to least deprived groups and if the factors combined together interact differently in lower decile groups.
