ABSTRACT:
This study measured trace elements and assessed fluoride levels in groundwater in Azerbaijan. We investigated endemic diseases in regions of Azerbaijan using the aforementioned data. Geographic regions were classified as an endemic region or not by using a support vector machine (SVM). Classification accuracy for the SVM classifier was determined to be 76.92%.
