The NIH has published the UMLS database, which consists of more than 7 million concepts, diseases and symptoms. It's a very wealthy resource. The license is pretty permissive if you are working in the United States. Check it out on the UMLS website. It's completely free and curated by the National Library of Medicine.

OpenDDX (Open disease x symptom data) is a project "about creating an open, reliable, global database that associates symptoms with diseases, for the good of everyone." http://openddx.net/ Project on GitHub: https://github.com/openddx Oddx-arch's repo explains this thoroughly: https://github.com/openddx/oddx-arch/wiki/OpenDDX:-an-open,-distributed-...

I would go with the population denominator of 878,964. According to the Census Bureau, the 20 to 24 year old 2011 population in Illinois was 881,738. As to your second issue, just remember that it only makes sense to combine them when you are looking for rate of cases among the population. If you want to reference it as the rate of chlamydia among the ...

I work at Quandl and we have some databases that cover water quality and infectious diseases. Within each database, you can search for "water" or "infectious disease" to narrow the datasets presented to you. Here are some databases showing datasets for "infectious disease": Organisation for Economic Co-Operation and Development https://www.quandl.com/...

This gets you the same formatted output in Mathematica as shown on the WolframAlpha site. WolframAlpha["lung adenocarcinoma"] If you just need ...

I am not exactly sure that this is what you are referring to, but the MEDDRA database costs money in most cases, but I believe there are some research licenses. It is a hierarchy of indications. http://www.ich.org/products/meddra.html Hope that helps.

The total population for Illinois in 2010 Census is 12.8 million. The 2.6 million should be for adults 20 to 24 years old. http://quickfacts.census.gov/qfd/states/17000.html The rate per 100K for these age group would be the total cases for the age group (30,080) divided by the population for the age group (2,636,892) which is 1.14% rate or 1,140 per 100K.

Check Bioportal for an ontology suiting your needs. There are various disease, anatomy and symptom related ontologies out there, which might help you there. Use the European Bioinformatics Institute Ontology Lookup Service (EBI OLS), to get suggestions, which ontologies you could use.

Have a look at the supplementary material of Learning disease relationships from clinical drug trials. disease_mappings10.txt file in the supplementary contains the info you need. For instance, if you do a search (e.g., grep "lower abdominal pain" disease_mappings10.txt), you will see lower abdominal pain abdominal pain Approximate

Check health care data sets from the "Awesome Public Datasets" git repository, and the FDA. Another possibility is gapminder, which has a subcategory "nutrition" with three data sets (as of this writing). The datasets about disease are much more targeted -- specific subcategories for tuberculosis, cancer, and others -- but there is that kind of data. The ...

It's incomplete, but NC DETECT is a well regarded disease surveillance system for emergency department and ambulance data. Their case definitions, both ICD and text/ chief complaint based, are online. Would take a bit of work to make a clean symptom database in the format you want, but might be a meaningful and useful subset. I work with that data fairly ...

I found the data source for the figure from The Guardian https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1kHCEWY-d9HXlWrft9jjRQ2xf6WHQlmwyrXel6wjxkW8/edit?pli=1#gid=0 Lots of extra features in that data to look at.
