Cardiovascular diseases are increasing day by day in Pakistan and now reach to a ratio of around 35 to 40 per cent of the total disease burden in Pakistan. This increasing ratio needs a detailed analysis of the overall geographical distribution of heart patients and also the most aggregating attributes (age, weight, income etc). To cater this situation a Threshold Inference Engine is designed which generates the association rules to extract the city wise more risk increasing attributes, and the common heart disease in that city. Automated Minnesota code is used for the verification of the collected ECGs. The generated results of the
Threshold Inference Engine successfully and efficiently generate a detailed report of each city describing the common heart disease and the attributes
