I need information on the disease frequency distribution among age groups for an Android app I'm building... Hopefully I've come to the right place. Is there a good data source for this? Like a bioinformatics database?

    $\begingroup$ I'd say this is also a bit vague in its current format, could you expand on what sort of information you are looking for. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ As the title says, I'm looking for the frequency distribution among age groups...Something like what percentage of type II diabetes patients are among age 40-50. And it's not just the distribution of one specific disease, but all kinds of diseases. $\endgroup$ Aug 2, 2013 at 18:22

You may need to study each disease individually or do a literature review. The Online Mendelian Inheritance in Man website may be a good starting point http://www.omim.org/ The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention lists several diseases with a variety of different statistics here: http://www.cdc.gov/DiseasesConditions/

  • $\begingroup$ I've been to the CDC site. I guess I can use the statistics there, but what makes it less ideal is that ages <18 are not included. I am currently working on other stuff, so please feel free to improve your answer in the next few days :) I'll accept your answer if no other better ones pop up. $\endgroup$ Aug 18, 2013 at 19:44
