In order to identify air pollution risk factors for respiratory disease patients, a quantitative computational method to identify high risk factors for respiratory patients was conducted in this study. The C4.5 classification algorithm was used in the computational method. SMOTE algorithm was applied to solve the imbalance data problem. Risk factor effect degree was calculated according to C4.5 classification model. Age was the top risk factor in nine subgroups, except ≤11. The age ≤49 youth were easier affected by NO2 and SO2 than >49. ≤49 were obviously more than >49. ≤49 were more easier suffer from acute upper respiratory infections, >49 were more easier suffer from influenza, pneumonia and chronic lower respiratory disease. The air pollution risk factors of respiratory disease were identified quantitatively. This quantitative computational method could be applied to predict other disease occurrence.
